Balancing between the design and experience, Materiality seemed to be the environment where the manifestation occurs. Design is tectonic and uses a material medium, which sets the language between the designer’s aspiration and user experience.
This studio emerges to have been able to help us communicate through this language called materiality which expresses a space.
Our journey was initiated by understanding an expression of a daily use product through its materiality, leading us to evolve an interior space of its headquarters representing the same expression.
A workspace that would link, connect and enhance the site rather dominate was the learning outcome from the product in form of the Glass water bottle. The interpretation of material of Glass and Metal was used to create transparency and modularity which has involved an innovative and new way of thinking about site element, light and the program leading to a workspace which inspires to think from the inside to outside and which connects the outsider to the inside through its transparent and clear approach of working being authentic in nature.
Materiality as a function of form, mass, detail, texture, and interaction with given elements of the site is analyzed and designed as the headquarter space. The product evokes an expression of transparency, continuity, and modularity which is optimized to function the best with the quality of being distinctive. This has been used to create the space for its headquarter through its materiality of Transparent Modularity using elements of site and order of interior elemental systems. The minimal material palette of only metal and glass using various techniques to produce diverse spaces with different expressions yet being holistic is representative of its Diversified Functionality i.e the material holds the potential to communicate different expressions generated through the implementation of materiality.Karl Freidrich once said, “Use the best possible material and reveal the qualities of those materials and the craftsmanship of their assembly is what makes the design and its materiality appropriate“.Thus this headquarter celebrates the craftsmanship of its product -Glass Water Bottle.
