DAI and Interplan have a long-standing relationship dating back over two decades. We value these enduring relationships and view them as a testament to the beneficial and dedicated design services we provide in all our partnerships with corporate clientele.
For this full floor renovation, DAI wanted to address many pandemic and post-pandemic related issues, including: less office density, more remote staff flexibility, collaboration in a variety of settings, and an overall finish palette rejuvenation. Interplans’ solution was to open-up the floor by introducing an assortment of meeting venues, from divisible conference rooms, to booths, to teaming tables, to lounge seating. One focal point is a ‘Yurt’ inspired, octagonal team room with tiered seating and virtual meeting capabilities.
To align with DAI’s mission ‘to work the frontlines of global development’ and evoke the emerging countries they support, a tribal theme was implemented using rustic prints and textures alongside bright and bold colors within a neutral background. A niche wall, displaying artifacts representative of the countries they are committed, stands adjacent to the ‘Yurt’ team room.
