When cnYes asked Waterfrom Design to create its new offices it was clear that the focal element would be time. The time of lightning financial deals online and that of the relationship between staff and office work. It is so dominant that it became the motto of the cnYes company: " Time is money ".
Waterfrom design has deconstructed the concept of time and reassembled it in fragments in various spaces. An idea of constant progression is created by a combination of old and modern materials and further reinforced by various styles of clocks on the walls.
The last feature of this project, one that is essential for any office, is the flexibility of its spaces. In this case it was achieved with mobile panels to divide the large central space, transforming it as needed into an auditorium for one hundred people or little rooms for six. The elegant fittings remind us that cnYes is a mass communication and finance company.
