Fosite Studio designs for offices of Facebook and LinkedIn in India
In the highly demanding work environments of tech companies, office canteens are a space to take a break, build friendships and collaborations, nourish yourself (of course), or simply let those tough questions simmer at the back of the mind. The atmosphere at the work place has a considerable impression on the workforce. That’s why when big tech giants, Facebook India and LinkedIn India wanted to design their work space, they reached out to Fosite, a Bangalore-based studio. Fosite specialises in spatial design, environmental graphics, and art and interactive installations—the expertise in all evident in these projects. Here is a bit about Kha, the dining space at Facebook office, and more about the interiors of LinkedIn office, both designed by Fosite:
Kha, dining space at Facebook, India office
At Facebook, cafes are built in-line with a restaurant, which includes thematically designing the space, graphics, and branding of the cafe. The Facebook cafe was named, Kha, a name chosen to be locally relevant, and the idea was to connect to the young demography of the company and have hints of the local culture while still being largely globally neutral and relevant.
At Kha, quirky images of tech-related products replaced food items. Wires wrapped around a fork like noodles, egg-like webcams, SIM cards and memory cards garnished over a cup cakes. From afar they looked like your daily food groups, but on close inspection, unraveled tech objects as easter eggs dotted all throughout the site. This resulted in a very fun, vibrant, and eclectic space to dine in.
Interiors at the LinkedIn India office
The interiors of the LinkedIn office were inspired from the concept of terrain, which connects and draws parallels with the geographical landscape of India. They are brought about by visualizing physical features through texture, pattern, graphics, crafts, material, and installations. This resulted in a space that is truly immersive globally and locally relevant, celebrating our surroundings and bringing together a visually engaging space.
Studio Fosite won two Blue Elephants at the Kyoorius Design Awards 2021 for designing dining spaces for LinkedIn and Facebook.
