At times offices can be high stress environments where teams are working on tight deadlines to achieve their goals, and at other times they can be places of fun, culture, and camaraderie; Muxin Studio's office design aims to visually represent both of those poles. The office draws stark lines between what the architecture studio refers to as "tense work" and "relaxed work", using a dichromatic bamboo and white scheme to show these sides of the office.
Muxin Studio used bamboo to represent the relaxed side of the work dichotomy, as the natural material gives people a calming feeling. The tense side of the office is kept pure white, but that decision is a practical one rather than a symbolic one. The whiteness removes any distractions, allowing workers to stay focused when they need to.
