Located on the sixth floor of an office tower, this project encompassed a complete remodel of the offices, lobby, toy showroom, and conference rooms. Design goals included increasing the amount of natural light throughout the offices and emphasizing the company’s products and their display. Previously covered and mirrored windows were replaced and transformed through the addition of a translucent glass layer inserted inside the exterior glazing. The result is a softly glowing interior light that brightens the office spaces.
A naturally inspired material palette including cedar used for the ceiling, locally-sourced stone and neutral-toned fabrics create a backdrop for the company’s toys. Teak and ash were selected for featured furnishings including entry benches and the CEO’s work table. Materials were also selected for their ability to withstand the high humidity and climate of Hong Kong. The showroom features a series of acid-etched glass walls and shelving that highlight the brightly-hued toys without overpowering them.
Olson Kundig designed a sculpture for the CEO’s office based on one of the company’s toy foam projectiles, and commissioned photographer Marsha Burns to create portraits of some of the company’s vintage toys to hang in the lobby.
