The iF DESIGN AWARD, sponsored by the Germany-based International Forum Design (Industrial Design Association), was established in 1953 and is well-known worldwide.
In 2022, more than 10,000 entries were received from over 60 countries, and 132 renowned design experts from over 20 countries selected outstanding designs based on the criteria of “IDEA,” “FORM,” “FUNCTION,” “DIFFERENTIATION,” and “IMPACT” to discover the next rising stars in the design world.
The new workplace for VMware Japan, designed by GARDE, was awarded the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022.
The concept of the space design is simple and understated yet projects future technology. The design is inspired by a unique Japanese concept of uramasari, which has an inner richness, expression, and color that is hidden by a humble and unassuming exterior.
The concept is expressed by making the visitor area subtle and harmonious while the staff area is colorful and expressive.
This focus on flexibility and collaboration serves a role in inspiring and facilitating new ways of working.
GARDE enters numerous national and international awards each year with the goal of inspiring others with the excellence of our space and design well after the design is completed.
