The underlying objective was to keep the space as fluid as possible and transcend the no-barriers theme into the way EMC’s employees work. EMC has adopted flex workspaces that give employees the freedom to work from anywhere across the floor without being tied to a specific desk.

The predominant colors are white and grey and are matched perfectly by our designers with wooden style flooring and details of red. Most of the materials used for this client space are from 3M product inventory, in order to capture the wide and differentiated 3M product portfolio in real life applications.
Research labs and contact lenses – the client’s main product – served as our inspiration. White exposed ceilings combined with glass surfaces combine to create a light and transparent space. This seemingly sterile aesthetic is balanced by green walls along the space’s main visual axes and functional solutions which encourage teamwork and relaxation.
In just 20-sq-m, a salon in Belgrade, Serbia, makes a big statement. The rental property could not have permanent changes made to its design, so the team at a2arhitektura treated the entire interior space with a black tone. This not only hid unsightly dropped ceiling and plaster-covered beams, but made the space seem bigger.
Dark-glass surfaces, mirrors, metal trees and cage-like boxes hanging from the ceiling (from which the shoes have “escaped”), all carry a carefree, experimental and impermanent air. The angular and clunky space with its hard edges and seemingly moving parts is clearly an attempt to say that the septuagenarian brand is nowhere near slowing down.
The idea was to capture transparency and light in a rather dark space with limited natural light. The design is futuristic with a color palette in subtle, natural colors juxtaposed with harsh fluorescent lighting. Glass surfaces, light panels and walls are covered by illustrations and typography that capture fictional environments and people in motion.
