Waterfrom Design has completed the interior space for Taiwanese financial media firm cnYES in Taipei

Accuracy and speed are crucial to media outlets. To meet these fundamental rules, Waterfrom Design from Taiwan has designed a new office for cnYES in Taipei.

Designers adopted “time” as the theme of the office to highlight the fast pace of swift cash flow as well as online real-time information. In the conference room area, designers reassembled deconstructed fragments of a timepiece to create a scattered yet completed abstract clock, implying progressiveness of time.

The conference room is segmented with see-through steel parts and glass, creating space hierarchy and enriching visual translucency to remove the demarcation separating space and time. To accommodate different needs, movable partition panels are adopted to change the size of the room from a small area for six people to a big auditorium hosting more than one hundred participants.

Gold and blue are the main colours throughout the office to represent the aspiration for wealth and prestige along with knowledge and trust.

Tables and chairs in the lounge are integrated with storage cabinets combining practicability and aesthetics in design. The movable chairs are equipped with storage space, while blue rectangular tables, inspired by high back chairs from medieval Europe, present an interesting "small chair inside a big chair" effect.
