Project's description: Mobile applications developed for clients all across the world are Droids On Roids flagship product. Keeping in mind their development process, mode:lina™ designers decided to transfer the mobile sphere of programmers’ work onto the walls of their new office. The black stripe running across all spaces just below the ceiling is nothing else but a status bar, just like the one in majority of popular smartphones.
Combining mobile applications environment with Droids On Roids visual identity system was the main theme of our project. Apart from elements typical for mobile applications, the interior was given yellow features, which together with lamps in a shape of a zig-zag located all across the office, correspond with a lightning in Droids On Roids’ logo.
By completing the corridors with islands with armchairs and special soundproof booths, the office gained a large private space. There is also a nap room – a separate area with a big yellow hammock and comfortable beds.
Droids On Roids team spend a lot of time together, not necessarily only while working. In 2016 the team went on a month-long workcation to Bali. It turned out that the programmers had a number of very important rituals around celebrating the delivery of their projects or around watching films together.
Therefore they needed a space which could serve both purposes – daily work and after hours events. Hence the two functions of the kitchen and the playroom were brought together in a multifunctional large space, which is always lively.
A lightning has been placed in nearly every space and it took on various roles – a decorative element on the door, detail work on the desks or phone booths’ door handles.
