Torishima is a global pump manufacturer founded in 1919 in Osaka, Japan, who supply centrifugal pumps. UAE expansion involved a new build with workshop facilities, offices for technical staff and front of house meeting, training and reception for international visitors.
A palette of warmer and softer materials was added, juxtaposing the pre-cast concrete panels as a backdrop. Clever lighting integration was used to emphasize the textures whilst the specified furniture is classic and seamless. The motivation of the design was a mixture of contemporary Japanese architecture and a reflection of the product function, the movement of water. Through the use of the warm wood, striped carpets, open ceiling and slats, we ensured that the space retained the open, slick, and sophisticated elements of the brand.
