Text description provided by the architects. Studio CJ transformed an entire floor of a 1970s office building into a showroom, head office and studio for Swedish makeup and skin care brand CAIA Cosmetics. The interior design focuses on creating an extraordinary, candy-colored yet professional space to represent CAIA and enhance their brand experience. The color palette and concept are inspired by the identity of the company, its products and its visual language.
The program is divided into two parts. A showroom part with a photo studio, a styling and makeup station, a content creation room and a lounge. The interior of this part of the space is white, crisp, calm and crisp with the exception of a hot pink walk-in closet and a large white oiled oak table specially designed and manufactured for this project, serving as a study station. hair styling and makeup for photoshoots.
The second part is the office space with four meeting rooms, two open office spaces, a kitchen, a living room and two offices. This part takes up about two-thirds of the 660 square meter space and is separated from the showroom and the studio by a generous and welcoming entrance lounge. The conference rooms have individual colors of pastel green, blue, purple and silver.
These rooms along with some colorful objects and elements throughout the office have a scenographic feel and stand out from the otherwise minimalist but clean interior. The idea is that the interior functions as a backdrop for the office’s products and creativity.
