MTMDESIGN is an interior design studio founded in 2013 by Barcelona architect Max Trullás Moreno in Shanghai, China. We are specialized in hospitality and commercial projects. We have experience in multiple Asian markets like China, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Korea, Indonesia and Vietnam.
We craft every project as a unique story. Each context, location, concept and client deserve a unique narrative as an answer to their needs.
We like to engage with the final user, creating comfortable environments and emotional experiences with a fun and creative twist. Because life is too short to dine or work in a boring or uncomfortable space!
MTMDESIGN work has been published in multiple magazines and online design websites like AD China, Elle Decoration, BOB Magazine Korea, Officesnapshot and Designboom. MTMDESIGN was also selected in AD100 2017, as one of the most influential designers in China.
Energy drink company Red Bull, committed MTMDESIGN its second office in Shanghai after a growth period. The space had to be open and flexible at the same time. Able to hold small events and allow the team to expand in the future, without compromising the work performance of the team.
The space needed to transmit the company core values, of energy, speed, commitment with extreme sports, music and creativity.
The main office space is divided into open office area and flexible lounge-pantry-event space. The main room is visually divided by sliding glass panels with playful deconstructed Red Bull hero graphics.
Over the main open area, we combined expanded metal panels with linear fluorescent light fixtures creating a sense of speed and future, altogether masking part of the services. At the walls we combined translucent polycarbonate panels and cabinets to play with transparencies and light. Wooden storage units with red metal framing provide a warm colorful accent contrast and soften up the space.
There three private meeting spaces. Visitor’s room at reception area is themed with desert racing graphics. Board room, with views to the Huangpu river and futuristic Pudong business district, takes inspiration on racing and skiing.
The open pantry with its movable stainless island and surrounding counters are doubles up as events space, and hot desk area.
