Touch the sky

by Touch Design

Projet Description

"The minimalist" refers to a group of people known as "minimalists", namely advocates of minimalist life.
How to understand "The minimalist"? Eliminate everything you don't want and choose only what is necessary. It is not difficult to see that the essential element of minimalism is "less" . But lack of things does not mean lack of style, so keep what you like and what you are interested in, and keep minimalism intact.
This extreme reduction makes it easier to focus on the few objects in the room. This environment calms the mind and sharpens your senses. It is the basic belief of minimalists.
Touch design ingeniously refines cultural elements and applies them to modern space, showing elegant charm while leaving more room for touch. Green plants light up the living vitality of the office. The clean and free color is the trail of wandering thoughts, extending tentacles in the blank space.
The whole space chooses the most classic white as the main tone, without tedious design and too much decoration, subtracting the depression in the office. Through the combination of natural pure white and quiet black, the brand image is presented concisely, while creating a harmonious sense of transition between left and right space.
Free communication is essential to team innovation. The open office is a place for effective access to information and inspiration. The shutters allow enough natural light to enter the room and create an efficient working environment. In order to maximize the performance of the limited space, designers have opened up a whole area of soft packaging materials. Here, everything unknown and existing common sense memory are transmitted, and the tentacles of creative thinking begin to spread. The small green tree separates the high white two-person table, which provides a more casual and face-to-face office form.
The space on the other side adds a little privacy. On the calm wooden desk, the green branches are like the tentacles of the thought, connecting with cactus and small green plants in series. The region is independent and separated by glass doors, which ensures that designers can maximize their immersion in creative thinking, and at the same time communicate and exchange ideas with partners in time, colliding with different ideas.
The conference room is designed with glass and shutters. Such a communication area not only maintains the mutual penetration and connection, enhances the tension of the place, but also guarantees the privacy of the whole space. The interior uses the local hanging art of the fitted design, coupled with the deep sensory effect of metal, to create a delicate artistic atmosphere. In addition, multimedia devices enhance the information radiation effect of wall space.
The charm of design is often to try to break the boundary and inherent limitation, so as to make the space more possible and interesting, and make people in the space have different experiences. This case transforms office space into art space, and at the same time adds modern humanistic elements to shape the unique temperament of the office. In the view of designers, art should not be a distant luxury, but a daily product, which can be seen everywhere as food for life.
A good space design should pay attention to clear primary and secondary, and follow the functional requirements. Designers divide the space into different areas, which not only meets the needs of teamwork and focus, but also relaxes the nervous brain.
The creativity of design comes from the infinite possibilities of thought. Soft tones give rise to infinite reverie in space, while the antennae of ideas spread and interact with each other in space. All of these give creative ideas a far-reaching enlightenment that can not only express logic and structure, but also reflect the image of "touch".
