After using Interface carpets in an office interior project, the designers at FUJI BUSINESS Co., Ltd were so impressed that they just had to them for their own new office in Marunouchi. As specialists in workplace design, workstyle consultation, facility and project management, they know good design when they see it!
With form and function that helped her meet the needs of their previous project, Hiroka Maruyama, senior designer at FUJI BUSINESS Co., Ltd, was confident Interface products would be perfect for her own office. The direction was ‘chic and elegant’ with four main characteristics – Mobile, Multi-generation, Motivation, and Marunouchi – aptly represented in the office’s name: ‘Produce M4’.
Marunouchi is one of Japan’s most prestigious business districts and their brand new space reflects that elegance. As you step in, you’re greeted with pristine white walls and strong textured earth tones, drawing you into the space. Peer deeper into the workspaces and you will be introduced to accented splashes of greens and reds in the form of plants and furniture.
Hot desks, break-out areas and information communication tools were implemented to support the ‘Mobile’ workstyle requirement. This flexibility caters to the variety of workstyles preferred by different generations and means that employees are not bound by time and place.
When choosing the flooring, the Human Nature™ Collection from Interface with its variety of designs was selected to help motivate and inspire proactive working. Hiroka elaborates: “Because the Human Nature Collection had different textures with the same colour, it created subtle movement on the floor, which made nature-like movements in the space.” Pebble inspired textures morph seamlessly into natural stone textures, while contrasting shag tiles sprinkle the office with colourful surprise. You can tell Hiroka’s choices made quite an impression, because customers who visit their office always want to know more about the carpets and flooring design.
