After construction completion of this air-conditioning giant's 4.1 million-square-foot manufacturing, warehouse and corporate office complex, the executives decided the minimalist finish of the original direction was TOO minimalist. Inventure Design was hired to redesign certain elements and areas, and we were brought on to carry the brand throughout the space.
Daikin wanted the new interiors to reflect their brand and their product line. As manufacturers of AC units, they condition and move air. The concept here was to convey the idea of fluid movement down a long corridor. Words expressing the company ideals were added in key locations.
The wave wall was just a piece of the overall project. Other elements included a company history video wall nearly 100 yards long, as well as a Welcome video wall and kinetic sculpture in the lobby.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
