  • Industry Hardware / Software Development, Technology,
  • MāK Interiors was tasked with the innovative and playful design of the Axiom Zen offices, a software company located in Vancouver, Canada.

    In our very first discussion with the Axiom Zen team, they asked for a ‘Willy-Wonka-and-Chocolate-Factory-inspired space’ and we couldn’t have been more excited to make it a reality!

    The space plan is the biggest indicator of the theme, with its curving walkways mimicking Wonka’s iconic chocolate river. Here, we’ve created a twisting and turning pathway of polished concrete connecting work spaces, meeting rooms, and break-out areas for an office experience that flows seamlessly. The mostly neutral backdrop of crisp white walls follows the curvy lines leading to pops of colour at communal destinations such as the townhall/kitchen, meeting rooms and library space.

    Artist murals, cotton candy coloured carpet, and furniture that spans a rainbow of gum-drop colours, reflect Axiom Zen’s array of branded companies and their inventive nature as a team.
