The client is a design company, working on branding and communication design. The company’s main concept of design is hospitality. In Japan, the spirit of hospitality is called “Omotenashi”.
This spirit has been part of the Japanese culture for a long time. We aimed at making “Omotenashi” space in this modern office. To make “Omotenashi” space, we translated Japanese traditional elements into modern design. Wooden frame is used to realize a traditional but modern space. Mirrors make the wooden frame seem as if it is extending into a big space. Lightings are set on the wooden frame to illuminate the ceiling.
Traditional materials and colors are used in the design. We expect visitors to feel nostalgic, easy, and relaxed by this “Omotenashi” space.
