project Matteo Belfiore Architecture & Design
The project of the new MSC Tokyo Headquarter aims to realize a genuinely glocal environment: inspired by the local identities and realized with a modern and universal language. Inspired by the flexibility of traditional Japanese architecture, the project is based on the statement that the quality of work environments favors higher and better productivity. As first the concept of integration, between the Italian and Japanese cultures. The first being celebrated worldwide for the quality and beauty of its design, the second characterized in architecture by the concept of space flexibility. Wellness, in one word, for the employees and the guests. Then innovation, taking advantage of the latest cutting-edge technologies. Finally customization: adapting spaces and furnishings to specific needs. For each of these guiding ideas, specific design choices were made, together with a selection of furniture mainly dreamed in Italy and produced in Japan.
