Kao's UK office in London has been awarded Workplace Fit Out Project of the Year at the SBID Design Awards 2023.

A huge congratulations to our ambitious client Kao, our very talented designer Anna Dejlova and all of the team for designing and building this amazing project.

With environmental aspects, employee wellbeing, collaboration and productivity in mind, Kao's office was designed as an innovative blend of biophilia, natural light and flexibility. The design puts a focus on the use of natural materials and a neutral colour palette to create a calming environment perfectly tying in with our guiding principle of “Kirei”, which describes something that is clean, well-ordered and beautiful at the same time.

The SBID awards recognise, reward and celebrate design excellence across Interior Design, Fit Out and Product. The judging panel represents a wealth of specialist industry expertise across the creative professions and related fields, consisting of highly respected figures from some of the world’s most innovative and exciting companies. The Fit Out category is for specialist interior contractors across the commercial and residential sectors, assessed for successful completion, execution, finishes and final detailing.
