Challenge

Corporate cafe design can transform the engagement of employees. Companies owe that 1 hour of delightful dining experience to their employees, to provide them a mid-day break. Often, great cafes spur great conversations which in turn helps churn innovative ideas. The challenge was to make this large cafe for Cisco more of a restaurant than a cafe.

Strategy

Rezonant commissioned renowned photographer, Senthil to click breathtaking pictures of artist Sumanth at his fabulous studio. The photographs provided intensity and calm, in a monochrome monologue.

Textures and 3D ceramic sculptures from artist Adil Writer of Pondicherry, along with a clean design language from RSP Design consultants helped transform this cafe into a fine dining experience.

Design

The design used over 25 high resolution photographs of various stages of clay pottery making. These visuals were then color corrected to blend in with the interior design scheme. This scheme helped differentiate this cafe from the other cafes we designed for Cisco.
