The relationship between the workplace and physical environment was exploited by using the company's motto of bringing their clients quality, natural and healthy products without compromise. These unique offices are composed of a mix of open and closed spaces that takes inspiration from the organic growth which one finds in nature. A system of organic draping wood forms with triangulated skins were created to mimic nature’s organic growth and define space. This balanced composition makes the project more than an office, instead it becomes a place of experimentation, innovation and discovery.
