A Look Inside Nu Skin’s New Singapore Office
Beauty product company Nu Skin hired interior design firm Conexus to design their new office in Singapore.
“Designed with employee feedback on their working needs and preferences, the inclusive design is an inviting experience that supports the diverse ways Nu Skin employees like to work. The wide variety of work settings include a lifestyle café, hospitality-inspired lounge settings, private pods, phone booths as well as height-adjustable desks to configure sitting or standing workstations as desired. These activity-focused seating options encourage employees to change their seat as required throughout the day.
“As much as today’s workforce are working from home or traveling for business, what people crave is social interaction, in-person teamwork and really connecting with people,’ noted Brendan Khor, Managing Director of Conexus Studio. “That’s why we reimagined Nu Skin’s regional office to be a hybrid hub where one is naturally moving around and connecting with others along the way, as opposed to a place where everyone just comes in to work on their own thing.”
To further enhance team connectivity, the layout blurs traditional barriers, offering almost complete openness from one end to another. Rooms are fitted in glass in line with Nu Skin’s transparent company culture, displaying activity that would otherwise happen behind walls and doors.
To ensure a balance of vibrancy and privacy in the open layout, a progressive zoning approach was adopted, with social and focus work areas delineated with very different materiality. A setting for team gatherings, the Nu Skin Café is infused with energy and warmth, while a subdued and predominantly white space takes up the opposite end of the office, creating a distraction-free and calm setting. Lower-stimuli team collaboration areas sit in the centre of the office, with phone booths and meeting rooms on the fringes.”
