A Chinese-Inspired Minimal Office In Ukraine: XINWEI Office by SOESTHETIC GROUP


International architecture and interior design firm SOESTHETIC GROUP designed the office of Chinese international telecommunications company XINWEI located in Kiev, Ukraine and completed in 2016.

“Our studio had a difficult task to create a modern, innovative interior office design for the XINWEI GROUP, an international Chinese company that develops and manufactures telecommunication products for the global wireless market.” – SOESTHETIC GROUP

“Our design emphasizes company’s cutting edge business along with the teaching and philosophy of ancient China. According to traditional Chinese beliefs, the world is made up of five basic elements: water, fire, wood, metal and earth. The permanent nature of water – to be wet and flow down, fire – to burn and to rise up, wood – to resist bending and strengthening, metal – to submit to external influence and chance. The nature of the earth is to take the seed and to yield a harvest.” – SOESTHETIC GROUP

“The main accent of the interior are giant chrome ‘drops” that represent the first and the main element – water. Plants located throughout the space and the “living wall” are expressions of wood and earth. Fire is brought with ward decorative lighting and in safe fireplaces that use ethanol fuel and which are lit at sunset. Finally, we introduced metal by including aircraft engine turbines in the interior.” – SOESTHETIC GROUP

“During our primary planning we decided to weave together the offices, with panoramic windows an stunning Kiev views, with the exhibition area, where Chinese cultural showpieces and XINWEI’s innovative products are on exhibit. Another interesting feature is the design of the meeting rooms which are freestanding translucent cylinders of different diameters.

Another highlight of the interior is the 20-meter interactive projection along the main wall which can be easily changed to alter the atmosphere inside the office – museum.” – SOESTHETIC GROUP
