Workspace of the Week - COTY Offices, Toronto
Global beauty brand COTY, have recently moved into their new offices in Toronto, a space which embodies their brand aeshetic to welcome visitors and provide an interactive working environment for employees.

Global beauty brand COTY have recently worked with iN STUDIO to design their new Toronto offices in Canada. Following a merger with P&G Speciality Beauty Business, Coty have now provided a fresh, new start for all of their teams, relocating from a low-rise property in the suburbs to a premium downtown space.

iN STUDIO have designed this office to be reminiscent of a high-end Parisienne apartment living room, steering away from the traditional corporate office colour palate and instead opting for a delicate balance of soft pastels and neutrals. Velvet and chandeliers provide soft touches throughout the space, an open ceiling maximises light flow and a damask film added to glass partitions provides an upscale texture to these stunning offices.

A bright reception welcomes visitors into Coty's offices, immediately showcasing the luxury aesthetic of the Coty brand, with features such as a crushed velvet ceiling and unique wall details. A large cafe provides an alternative environment for both clients and employees, doubling also as a collaborative work area, a space for socialising and quiet reflection. Inspired by a classic French bistro, the space features a mix of white marble tables and dark leather seating.

Coty looked to foster interaction between teams, and so opted for a completely open floor plan to suit all working requirements with a variety of workstations for all employees. Custom grey tables and overstuffed armchairs serve as collaboration zones between workstations and the workspace also features a retail showroom designed for mocking up store displays. Doubling as an additional meeting room, a fragrance room also showcases the brand's full range of perfumes.

Also designing Coty's Montreal office and Wella Studio, iN STUDIO specializes in creating one-of-a-kind workplace solutions, bringing brands to life within their space.
