Cloud Office

This is an interior design project for the cloud service IT company Banbu. It is a 250 m² space located in one of the office buildings of the Pudong financial district. This place is the behind-the-scenes of internet service, where the manual labor for the cloud happens. The seamlessness of the digital disappears, instead, it is where the cloud meets the ground. Blocks are erected from the ground, becoming storage units, spatial dividers, and furniture pieces. Perforated panels form a field on the ceiling, loosely concealing the plenum space. Lighting fixtures and translucent screens are “downloaded” from the field above. The “cloud” sits lightly on certain masses but cuts through others, forming volumes that connect the rooms divided out of functional necessity.

This is a pivately commissioned project compeletd in 2021.
