The 'Ocean of Dots' office by Matsuya Art Works Co. Ltd. is a whimsical take on traditional corporate design. Located in a Japanese private school, this intriguing space dares to stand out.

The Okayama 'Ocean of Dots' office by Matsuya Art Works leaves a dizzying effect on its visitors with an abundance of reflective materiality that showcases a multitude of bold white dots. Designed by Tetsuya Matsumoto, the focal points of the space appear to be hovering in the air. Using thousands of white dots, the designer applied the dynamic elements onto a series of translucent screen walls.

These screens serve as spacial dividers, separating the area into a number of meeting rooms. Extending onto a mirrored wall, the dots reflect onto one another, giving the illusion of a grand space that is visually expanded.
