MARK is a creative production company that produces CG/VFX for commercials and films. Located on the first floor of an office building, the company was looking to not only improve their office infrastructure, but also find a design that would distinctly show its ‘face’ to those passing by on the street outside.
Modeled on the brick and steel plating architecture that is characteristic of Tokyo’s Tsukiji district, we proposed constructing a space that utilizes patterned tiles and copper sheeting that recreates an interior reminiscent of the familiar Tsukiji surrounds.
Additionally, as the office would be dealing with the creation of CG and the multitude of colors that medium entails, it was thought that using a more muted palette as much as possible would be aesthetically ideal – the aforementioned tiles and copper sheets were therefore all unified in grey tones.
The 3.5m meeting room table is made from charred yakisugi boards sealed in clear epoxy resin – the striking texture of the rugged burned wood grain combining very nicely with the smooth touch of the table surface.
Using many kinds of materials while graying all the colors imparts a feeling of spaciousness to the entire 25 tsubo (approx. 86㎡) office space, one that deftly combines design aspects that are the ‘face’ of the company with functionality.
