When designed an interior of commercial building, we have to perform the character of product or company in room design. For example here, interior design of head office of cellular phone company in South Jakarta, Indonesia. Designed by Gregorius Yolodi and team, this 301 square meters office has a concept began from the character of telecommunication network technology, the basis of the cellular phone product. The products are dinamic, progressive, and fluid that express sophisticated, light and transparent. The product uniqueness represented by simple and modern elements of the room.
The strength of design is materialized by applicating the the straight vertical and horizontal lines, clean from complexity ornaments. The selected materials from combination of metal, glass, and board give up-to-date impression. Every material applicated is sticking it out its pure colour and texture. For instance, perforated metal board and anti-corrosion alumunium used as divider room frame, door frame and workstation. The glass material with sandblast finishing is applied as ceiling and wall cover, also for the furniture such as table and product display showcase. The accent is created by wood material applied in some parts of the interior, in the corridor and the filing cabinets.
