Informatica, a data-integration powerhouse, has offices on four continents, but doesn’t want them all to look like clones of its home base in the Bay Area. In order to achieve that individual-but-part-of-a-larger-whole appearance, NicholsBooth worked with Informatica and its global design partners.
Together we came up with a Tokyo workspace that shares some key features and familiar elements of other Informatica offices, while reflecting the refinement, character, and work culture of Japan. We drew inspiration from the Japanese seasons and traditional patterns, such as the 1,000-year-old “Asano-ha,” which was created with local art tile.
