The crafting of this office space for a Denim washing unit in Mumbai works on the Industrial style of Interior designing. Unconcealed, bare, exposed, obvious materials define this style.
The material like Denim is basically by nature very tough, rugged, raw & rough. “Nothing to hide” nature of Denim matches the interior styling given by us to the office space.
The partitions throughout the space are in exposed brick (in natural form) and in wooden textured fibre planks. Extensive use of iron in the form of table stands, cage lights, plumbing pipes as door handles & storage trunks add to the rugged look that resembles the “Denim” character.
The rooms’ widths & lengths are lesser than their heights which are brought down visibly by painting them in dark colour. Quotes defining the communication by Denims, its character, the fashion statement, the feel, the variety in styling are all over the place. These quotes keep the grip of the whole Denim character given to the office intact.
The lighting is restricted to mainly exposed one and is kept to minimalism. The pendants used are the main source of lighting majorly.
Overall the democratic fashion i.e. Mantra of “Nothing to hide” is the central idea behind the creation of this office. This mantra aids in the branding & visual merchandising of their product too.
