Fontworks' headquarters office (Minato-ku, Tokyo), which opened in December 2019 and will soon be one year old, received the Honorable mention in the interior design office category of the American international design award "Architecture Master Prize".
The head office, which embodies Fontworks' tagline "Freedom with letters, more and more" creates an environment based on keywords such as "fusion of creative and engineering," "working while playing," and "collaboration between employees." It was held and this time it was awarded.
This is the fifth international design award received by the Tokyo headquarters office, following the Outstanding Property Award London, MUSE Design Awards, A'Design Award and Competition, and Novum Design Award.
The fontworks office is divided into a main floor where work is performed and multiple conference room floors. The main floor has a desk in the shape of C (Creative, Collaboration) in the center. In addition, we have a large display that is always connected to our Fukuoka Creative Lab, and we are actively communicating between the two locations.
The meeting room is designed to change the interior and interior for each room and select the location according to the mindset. The entrance that connects the main floor and the conference room floor is equipped with a chair and display for the platform, providing a place for casual communication with people outside the company.
The entrance is fantastically decorated with panels in Arabic letters, which have been very well received by visitors.
The design was done by PRISM DESIGN headquartered in Shanghai, China. An international architecture and design studio with a number of prominent awards and activities globally.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the fact that our office has realized “Freedom with letters, more and more” and realized a highly creative and playful office design.
