Yiduan Shanghai Interior Design completed an office named "BOX100" in Jiangxi, China. This office was inspired by "matchbox", which aimed to break modern office's fixed order, bring more fun and stimulate innovation. It's a creative solution to a humane scale in contemporary office space. Yiduan described that, "BOX100 is like a matchbox that is waiting for the most brilliant sparks come from the collision of ideas."
BOX100 is located on the top floor of a single three-story office building. The facade is composed of white cement columns in different lengths, which creating an image of "the fire burns high when everybody adds wood to it", just like the company's shareholding system.
While the interior space is dominated with a black color scheme, interspersed with wood color, light and shadow, achieving a pure and simple atmosphere that can calm people's heart.
"The rectangular desks are randomly placed in the space, some are scattered in the office, and some are piled up in the meeting area. They seem like modular matchboxes that can be assembled freely, which change the stereotyped impression of a rigid office. The irregular black and the original wood color of the table are matched with each other very well, and the steel grids not only filter the dazzling sunlight, but also the impetuousness, and only leave behind the deep and endless inspiration and wisdom," Yiduan Shanghai Interior Design added in its design brief.
