  • Jmarvel Interior Design desired more than just an office when creating their design studio located in Taipei, Taiwan.

    We apply multi-level relationship to the office space, and extend the practical aspect of the design with the concept of “Material Lab”. This space is beyond the use as an office, and the possibilities extend as a complex place. You can regard this space as a design resource studio and materials library. To link the emotions of the community, we continue to hold a number of experimental courses on life and aesthetics, such as floral workshops, cooking classrooms, clothing design exhibitions and sales, coffee diners, etc. Through an open space, piling up the style of life culture with beautiful things, it may become a place for the spread of daily beauty. This “Material Lab” not only belongs to company members, but also belongs to every participant of all kinds of activities. Therefore, when we started naming this project, we did not deliberately add a corporate office sign to this space, but adopted a neutral name, which reflects the local emotions and defines this place belonging to “everyone”.

    In the first half of the site, the plane is divided into two parts by the entrance, and two moving lines are divided to provide different space requirements. The designer has changed the entrance of the old house, moved the gate to the center, and separated the meeting space and the open space invisibly with two types of ground materials: terrazzo floor tiles and wooden floors. They replace the traditional configuration of physical screens. Sunlight shines indoors and sprinkles the trail on the walls, lighting up the interesting texture of the space, and laying out the imprints of time.

    The keynote of the sense of life spreads in places which are deliberately created like the family dining room. Imagine that we can not only carry out all the daily activities of official business, but also we are all invited to participate in it… We believe that the background color of design is time. Therefore, an interesting artistic experiment was carried out in the front yard. The designer made two iron plate partitions. In the days with no deadline, with the change of temperature, humidity and the base, it deteriorates slowly. Finally, it was embroidered into a natural organism. The remained “trace of time” has become the leading language of the interior space. The word “time” is clearly confirmed on the back wall of the conference room. The designer used special lacquer paint and washed it layer by layer with chemicals. Over time, it is superimposed and scraped to create an unpredictable texture that is naturally developed. The overall space uses a neutral background color, covered with hand-feeling creases flowing on the ceiling and walls, like a silent time and space, allowing the traces to show the most touching things in life.

    Practical aspect is the design tenet of this project. We chose a variety of different materials and lay them out in the interior in an intuitive and revealing way. Its purpose is to hope that when the customers participate in the meeting, it is like visiting the material exhibition room. Through discussing the configuration or material with the designer, they can touch and evaluate the actual effect and application of the material, not just limited to the vague imagination. In order to fit the space with the concept of the “Material Lab”, we have summarized and sorted out the demonstration of four major functional aspects as the basis of the space design of this project: (1) Different tastes brought about by “different construction methods”. (2) The diversification of “different types” of a single item. (3) The same item exhibits “different functions”. (4) The presentation of the “material conversion” of composite materials.
