From their intent to create a space that really connected with the farmers who are the foundation of this company in South East Asia, Orbit Design were engaged by East-West Seed, to design their headquarters located in Nonthaburi, Thailand, to create a workspace whose design is centred on the ‘Flourishing farm’ whilst celebrating the richness and variety of agriculture in the tropics.
Light, plants and an agricultural theme are spread both horizontally and vertically, filling the space with life and character whilst vibrant colours mix with natural materials and imagery, composed in a modern way to also convey the company’s forward-thinking ethos. This is balanced by humble, agricultural materials such as corrugated iron and exposed wood that remind visitors and employees of the farmers they serve.
Collaboration is encouraged with a multitude of flexible spaces whilst more private gatherings can occur in a variety of meeting rooms.
A large training area is complemented by the recreation area which features a relaxing library, quiet areas and a sports bar with football and table tennis.
East-West Seed’s new environment is now a fully balanced and positive space.
