The Office space of a company is a representation of the product it serves. At Sangini textiles, Jons Savalia and Disha Patel of the Vimmu Design Studio have beautifully inculcated this very idea into the working environment. Textiles are very colourful and so is this office christened ‘Hot Metal’. "We wanted to create an enclosure where the clients of the company can feel vibrant and yet at home," describes the designer. In addition, every corner is kept minimal in design yet exaggerated with colours. The use of metal plates in all of its furniture not only gave liberty to play around with clean details but, also helped in reducing space usage. The space is floored with terrazzo, our old Indian flooring, giving a touch of rawness while textured glass adds extra play to the overall space design. Take a tour of this wonderful office to get to know more design details, shared with SURFACES REPORTER (SR) by the design team.

Spread over an area of 1000 square feet, this textile office features a toned-down neutral backdrop underscored by colourful design elements and furnishings.
Subtle Bursts of Colours
As textiles come in a variety of designs and colours, the designers ensured to capture the same essence in the space. Hence, the office features a host of vibrant shades.
“We wanted to create an enclosure where the clients of the company can feel vibrant and yet at home,” describes the designer. Bright yellow anchors a lively red, while more muted shades of teal and blue also play accent.
Intriguing Design Elements
Interiors are peppered with vibrant and quirky design elements. The wall and floor embellishments are visually connected to this language of colours. The structural build of the ceiling features teal accents, under which red furnishings take center stage.
It hosts a mezzanine opening into the waiting area, connecting across volumes. The starkly contemporary silhouettes of the furniture are composed entirely of metal plates and are almost industrial in their raw, functional appeal. Though the vivacious colours give it a playful edge.
A quirky yellow staircase, reminiscent of a playground, bridges the floors.

Toned Down Neutral Backdrop
To let the colours sing, the designers ensured to maintain a calm and cosy neutral setting that is toned down. This offers an apt backdrop for the vibrant accent pieces and for textural interplay to shine through. A terrazzo flooring, echoing old Indian homes, grounds the spaces, acting as the common visual tread that connects the office. This orchestrates a play of old and new while adding a rawness to the overall space. Unpolished walls further this narrative of the raw. Textured glass separates zones, allowing diffused light to filter into the compact space throughout the day.
This office is all about creating a rich experiential quality that serves its users with extravagance and tranquility, thus serving as a perfect anecdote of a loud yet muted collective.
