For their own Showroom, COS Romania – well-known at a national level for providing design solutions and workspace planning – centered on the philosophy of human centered design.
By understanding the life-style and the needs of COS work-space users, the architects involved in the project succeeded to determine the concept of COS new Showroom in Bucharest. The solution came first from identifying existing problems, the most important being the lack of communication between teams. Therefore, the collaboration and interaction between them has become the backbone of the design and thinking of the workspace which facilitates communication, enhancing through each component the creativity of each team and ensuring the smooth functioning of the unitary whole.
Symbolically, the Work Café is the centerpiece of the workspace, a meeting opportunity between hosts and visitors as well as between all COS teams. Work Café also offers the function of space separation and organization. The organic silhouettes from the ceiling or from the bar level and even the high chairs fall into a general line that draws its inspiration from the biofil design to print a natural footprint on the entire space. Among its components we can find: mystery, perspective, refuge. The nature of users' work is the one that gives rhythm to the dynamics of the design that encourages the habits of the nomads. Wood has been privileged, being present at the parietal level, in the composition of the bar, in certain structures for separating the areas, etc.
