An Interior Designer overcomes the concept of architecture to approach a new territory that looks like technology combined with art and project culture. In designing new spaces he is able to express the relations among people living in a same space, shaping places in order to improve their life quality and according to their housing needs.
Being aware of the latest market’s requests, an Interior Designer knows that building or reorganising a residential space means to work with a heap of emotions, need of comfort, and modern ergonomic necessities.
Mind Base is a co-working space, where different minds meet and give birth to innovative ideas. Following how the brain connects its nerves by synapsis, the space connects environments and co-workers through furniture, layout, technology and the exchange of ideas. Converting the structure of human brain, the space is separated into a focused “hemisphere” for the rational work and creative open environment. The connection between different areas accomplishes the mission of co-working to stimulate the interaction between people with different personalities or backgrounds. The concept of a Co-working space is predominantly defined by its flexibility in time and space. Mind Base aims at creating a pleasant place of work, where people can connect, learn and have fun. This project has been realised by a group of IED Milano students: Alexandra Shirokova and Natalia Yavis, Interior Design, and Andris Arnold, Product Design.
