Collaborate experience at Mix Design Collective 2019

IA Interior Architects


With offices in 21 locations around the world, IA Interior Architects is the first global architecture firm focused exclusively on interiors. For Mix Design Collective, IA will take on the COLLABORATE experience.

“Through furniture we can explore the idea that there is no background or foreground in collaboration – the aim is to complete a task and achieve a goal through systematic approach. We can create an expression of collaboration through moments of unity and connection to complete a task or achieve a goal.’”

What has been your inspiration for this project?

It was more of a challenge than inspiration, everything started with a question: “What is collaboration in a room with no words?” Mix Design Collective gives us an opportunity to experiment with our work, and to work with different companies on something exciting.

What is the greatest challenge when it comes to designing for a collaborative environment?

We design for people and as designers, we should never forget this. Understanding people’s needs gives them the opportunity to have a better experience. Collaboration is a way of understanding your work and the relationship you have with your team. Design can show us how to do it – and how every element, from the biggest to the smallest, need to be respected and taken in consideration.
