RIGI design, based in shanghai, is a multi-disciplinary studio that works in everything from branding to spatial design. to accommodate the company’s growth, RIGI’s in-house team was tasked with creating an ideal interior for their new office in a former factory. described as ‘complex simplicity’, the work environment combines layers of geometrical patterns and strong black lines to evoke depth of space and communicate RIGI’s branding.





efforts include: a bespoke conference room with pitched roof, areas of timber flooring, felt wall panels that bring textural qualities to dominantly white walls, and lightweight open bookshelves that make the environment friendly and lively. the ‘RIGI design office’ is a space for creativity where designers have the tools, and surroundings, necessary to complete work at the highest level.
