Enter the brightly colored office of Lyonesse Pictures

Located in a 50-year-old tenant building in Tokyo, the new Desk of Lyonesse Pictures, a video production company specializing in drama and film genres, welcomes employees to a brightly colored and light-filled workspace. Taking advantage of the natural light that shines through the space’s three large windows, architects Satoshi Arai and Kei Nakatomi of Japanese studio Kii’planned to create a highly transparent space where the entire floor can be felt as one.

Against a neutral background, each space is carefully designed with a selection of saturated and pastel colors, ranging from bright pink to baby blue and dark green. Excluding the existing columns and central seating area, textures and patterns are generally omitted from the interior design to maintain visual flow.

create soft boundaries everywhere

In addition to offering a refreshing atmosphere, the studio also aims for a space that fosters interaction, as Lyonesse Pictures’ work ethic revolves around collaborating with different industries. That said, Arai and Nakatomi designed a zoning layout using colorful furniture and different types of sheer curtains to create soft boundaries, allowing light to pass through a room while gently blocking the line of sight from the outside.

“By adding color, a sort of boundary could be created around the furniture, gently dividing up a connected space where people, things and functions naturally intertwine,” explains the team.

As night falls, interior lighting – generously installed at the base of curtains and columns – transforms the office into an entirely new atmosphere, where colors and shadows deepen while warm-toned reflections flood the different rooms with a feeling of intimacy, concentration and calm. The new Lyonesse Pictures office is Kii’s latest architecture and interior design project, completed in November 2021.
