A Look Inside Energoprom’s Modern Moscow Office
Energoprom, a manufacturing company that manufacturers graphite and carbon-based products, reached out to architecture firm Ind Architects to build and design their new office in Moscow, Russia.
“The concept of the office is based on the pop culture of the 1960s and street art—trends that have been gaining ground again. The office was designed in the loft style. Concrete and bricks—materials that are conventional for this style—are highlighted in bright colors; walls are decorated with posters and graffiti. The color score and illustrations set up the mood of the interior—a recognizable creative space with informal setting. Such office encourages vigorous activity and active exchange of ideas among the staff. Street art is expressed not only in graffiti and the color score of the office, but in ingenious details too. For instance, lighting in the kitchen is provided by lamps in the shape of the iconic Campbell’s soup cans. A bright line of two shades of yellow runs from the entrance door throughout the hallway: a straight one in the hallways and a wavy one on the turns—a kind of way-finding that leads to a canteen and merges into a bar counter-table. A small space for meetings was provided for in the reception zone. There are zones for communication in the open space. Tables in these zones are made of cable reel elements—Energoprom works in the field of electric substation construction. The CEO’s office and the waiting area are made in the English style— minimalism of the main concept is dashed with intense colors and classy “British” details,” said Ind Architects
