Objective   

By the end of 2014 a young and successful company decided to move into a new office. Sergey Makhno found a perfect space, with which the director and owner Denise Uspenskie fell in love with.
THE STORY AND THE SOLUTION

Inspired by Maknho workshop's office interior, Dizaap's office decided to avoid harsh cosmetic work since the space was leased. What we got in the end? Poured concrete floor, exposed but organized ceiling wiring, bare walls displaying their creation story, natural, wild wood, aged metal and stone - ­this is wholeness of nature and a man, who constantly urbanized this world and just now stopped. “We had multiple objectives and just one canvas, measuring 141 square meters, for the hand of one artist. It was necessary to create a showroom, an office, maximum effectively use all space for a big and creative team, but most importantly, ­demonstrate philosophy, individuality and soul of our company”.

The time of suspended ceilings and laminated floors has ended, instead returned simplicity, minimalism, and non conformity. As a result, Dizaap's office became a real loft art-project, where in a clean and moist air soars the smell of ash tree, while freshly squeezed juice is made for the guests in the improvised kitchen.

Dizaap's studio craftsmen built a reception desk using palettes, which was perfectly completed by Sergey Makhno’s painting, given as a housewarming gift. Another one is hanging in the depth of the office and successfully contrasts with provoking orange boss’ chair. Bright accents in this ideal and pacifying space became: a lime cocoon­ chair from Ligne Roset, rocking chairs by Kartel, and a designer chair Sinusoid by Sergey Makhno. Also impossible not to notice a spacious couch “Divanidea” and comfortable chairs “Kristalia” and “Interstuhl”, as examples of sincere care about comfortability and well being of employees and clients.

Working space is separated from communal area with a book rack. Its shelves are filled with sculptures from Dmitri Grek and Sergey Makhno. On the wall perpendicular to book shelving, hangs a painting by Vladimir Zadiraka and Rhinoceros by “Studburo”, both perfectly complete this interior space. Two panels from “London Art”, a couple of massive mirrors from “B&B” and “Fendi”,a pair of “Contempo “ arm chairs, and two designers’ tables by “Porada” and “Kristalia”; through these items this interior achieves its unity and excellence. “ A man needs to be whole, team- integrated. Look, our table is whole and the lamp above is so long and absolute. That's how we sense each other better”.

Everything here is soaked throughly with art; out of fire niches lights are timidly peeking out, in the rustic stone bathroom water faucet had sprouted. Over the metal kitchen hangs a woven hammock, and decorative moss drapes the walls. “Trust me, precisely the interior made our life broader and brighter. I want to work more, I love working here, to create and to think positively, even when everything else is discouraging and apathetic”.
