9Studio Design Group, led by designer Tung Tsan Lee, has created a 330m2 studio space for its offices in Canton City, China, inspired by science fiction.
The two units yield multiple compositions and expansions in response to distant characters. The cubic unit is applied on the couch, blanket, and steps, where the cubes cover the multi-dimensions, vertically as well as horizontally. The stereometric layering defines the openness of multiple compositions on the first floor, such as the movable layout of the furniture, the salon area for a small lecture, and the gathering. The transparent door with a steel frame connects the inside to the outside, implying the interlocking relationship between the two.
The black steel panels form the curvaceous unit and the layering of geometric shapes is distorted and divided like an organic morphology of water bar, information desk, and the long dining table. The working desk on the second floor combines wood joints with steel panels. The structure looks like a butterfly that appears light and heavy at the same time. The symmetric shape facilitates the smooth circulation of the workflow.
Defining the Work Space
The first floor is the lounge, while the second floor serves as the working area. The long table on the center facilitates discussions. The supporting functions are laid out on the periphery, such as the LED screen, cabinet, printing room, material display room, and library. There is no director’s office. Each employee is free to walk and exchange ideas with their own choice of the work area.
The sense of relaxation is enhanced by the pond, greenery outdoor, the kitchen, and dining table indoor with bamboo panels on the ceiling.
The use of simple elements such as wood, steel, and artistic paints keep the space clean. It also expresses the objective of the company: to form the attitude and purity of design through the nature of the material.
