MR_DESIGN Office by Schemata Architects


We designed an office for MR_DESIGN, as known as a graphic designer Kenjiro Sano. The interior space is defined by the layout of the furniture, which has been meticulously designed. This enables the optimum use of the spacious interior, as it does not need partitions.

Even in the meeting space, where partitions are usually required, we have established a free-flowing space by the use of umbrellas. These are commonly used as light reflectors, but they also function as sonic-reflection collectors that enable people to have conversations without partitions.

This lighting system was designed for the editing of graphics in professional studios, its light-diffusion effect preventing shadows being cast onto the top of the table. As a further iconic element of the office, we have designed slopes connecting the interior spaces.
