Naturub is a Sri Lankan apparel accessories manufacturer passionate about the products they develop and the people involved in the process and The Design Studio is the space Naturub used to accommodate visiting designers to assist in the selection of products at their head office and factory complex at Mahawila, Panadura.
We thought the interior could offer a visual stimuli via the products of Naturub. We developed an interior finishes and material palette that was colour muted allowing the tapes produced at the factory and dyed in their own dye house to take center stage forming the vibrant ceiling and partition adding the colour contrast to space.
The dark ceiling and neutral toned cement walls and timber floors draw attention to the only colours present on the elastic tape products.
The facility contained the a studio space, a lounge and meeting room.
