Quirk Studio designs a pair of significantly distinct zones for this Mumbai office using natural materials
The adjacent cafe is a bright area featuring an exposed brick wall finished in distressed white and a dark grey marble floor juxtaposed with handmade hexagonal cement tiles. For Rajeev’s office, we chose a deep and warm colour palette, owing to the large windows that envelope the space. Here, accents in black metal, walnut wood and brass as well as indoor plants add fresh- ness. Wood is the dominant feature in this private workspace—from the flooring to the customised eight feet long, wood and metal desk. Furnishings such as the grey linen upholstered sofas and a beige rug contrast with the dark overtones of the desk, shelving unit and flooring. To the right of this cabin is the 12 seater conference room, where the white monotony is effectively broken by exaggerated bauble brass chandeliers. Contrary to what one may expect from a corporate office, visitors are met with a medley of contrasting colour palettes, bespoke furniture, greenery and ample sunlight making it appear plush and playful.
