Headquarters RIKEN KEIKI CO.,LTD.
A workplace design concept that incorporates collaborative work styles and captures the imagination of employees. Matière – As with the way to express feelings by overlaying paints in multiple layers, using an array of colours and materials throughout the building leads to a productive workspace with overlapping functions. Biophilic – Natural motifs, for example gravel as carpet and stone patterns as the flow of water, are used to create a sense of being close to nature for human well-being.
Statement of the jury
The clear architecture is effectively structured through a carefully arranged colour concept. At the same time, the materials used for the interior, coloured surfaces and textures reflect nature (forest, water, sky) in abstract form, creating a pleasant working environment.
