  • Industry Advertising / Marketing,
  • bude architects created a multi-functional workplace for digital marketing company, Promodo in Kyiv, Ukraine.

    The work space is designed for 68 employees and includes the following: an entrance area with a reception, a large meeting room, 2 small meeting rooms, a large open space, a kitchen with an amphitheater, a lounge area with sofas, a dressing room and a technical room.

    The visual concept of the Kyiv office has become a continuation of the general idea developed in the Kharkiv office. Our task was to rethink and to convey the city spirit of Kyiv and favorite locations of city dwellers in the interior design.

    The Kyiv funicular became the inspiration for the reception. It connects the historical Upper Town and Podil in Kyiv. This image was reflected in the decoration, finishing, shaping and the color scheme of the reception area. The graphic symbol of the city – a chestnut leaf – is carved on the sofa tables in the waiting area.

    Illustrations on glasses and walls by Natalia Shulga create a special atmosphere in the office. So two twins meeting rooms reflect the life of the right and left banks of Kyiv and received the corresponding names. In the remaining zones, various parts of the city are depicted: an office city, a party city, a relaxed city with a beach, etc. In each area familiar and favorite locations are guessed.

    The Kyiv office has the similar corporate meeting room as the Kharkiv office with a mosaic panel that reflects the slogan “Stand out”.

    14 chairs and armchairs from about a century ago are depicted at the mosaic panel CHAIRS of the Kyiv group Pomme de Boue. The panel is dedicated to the Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer and the giant myth associated with it. This myth is not exactly exposed, but rather placed in the context of other myths.The Wassily Chair is presumably the most famous chair of the twentieth century. It is in the center of the composition; this chair is also placed in a different projection on the desktop. The panel reaches 320 cm in width and 130 in height.

    In the kitchen, we have made a community table for convenient team communication at dinners. The amphitheater area is near windows and it is supposed to talk over a cup of coffee. It is also possible to organize general team meetings here.
