RSP INDIA / Cisco Sales Office Mumbai

A showpiece office for innovation

Here was a unique project where customer spaces had to embrace employee spaces seamlessly and deliver a complete brand experience to all stake holders involved. The design strategy hence, evolved into an experience where public, semi-public and secure private spaces flowed into each other dissolving set visual barriers between them.

While a contemporary tone and sleek straight line settings formed the core of the visual and spatial design, function has been integrated with active collaboration spaces sprinkled across the office. For example, an employee E-café placed centrally unites neighborhoods with a themed concept called ‘Mumbai Cafe’ encouraging collaboration for employees.
