Tomo Design Creates an Ethereal Sales Office in China
When Tomo Design was selected to design a property sales office for the Chinese real estate giant Sunac, they knew a conventional office would not be enough. “Customers want novel, superb, unknown experiences,” said founder Uno Chan. “We customized a variable selling and experiential space, that creates a spiritual realm beyond the physical one.” They called it “Art Beyond Mansion.”
That spiritual, ethereal quality is exemplified by a UFO-like installation of mirror stainless steel in the entry lobby. It hovers above a sandboard table where property models can be displayed. Nearly everything, from furniture in the lounge areas scattered throughout to whimsical robot sculptures, is custom.
For all its extravagant touches, the designers never lost sight of the business function of the sales center. Relaxation areas and even a gift shop are multi-functional spaces that can also serve as places for meetings and conversation. Tomo Design also had to let go of some ideas due to budget constraints. But in the end, they delivered a forward-looking artistic environment that transcends its purpose as an office.
