Pepperfry, one of India’s biggest online marketplace for home décor, recently anchored their new office space in Vikhroli, Mumbai’s burgeoning corporate hub. Like their many experience centres, the Pepperfry office too exhibits a distinct design lexicon. The brand is synonymous with creativity and ingenuity, and their workspace reflects the same tenets.
Driven by Pepperfry’s pursuit to nurture and inclusive and vibrant work environment, designer Saloni Khosla brings to life a quirky space to beat the blues. Whether it’s dunking one’s hand in a jar filled with paint to create “The Wall of Fame” for every Pepperfry member or catching a glimpse of Pepperfry team members’ caricatures whilst wandering the winding corridor, the office unravels a story of harmony.
Right from the moment you step in — in fact, even the reception makes a stunning statement. The colour palette is earthy, and the spirit is eclectic. The solid wood louvered doors beckons an audience and is sure to inspire artistic ideas. True to the start-up spirit, the idiosyncratic doors symbolise how the organisation prides itself in thinking outside the box. The earthy colour palette is carried through the entire space, however, colour pops in the most unexpected of spaces. Each section — the meeting rooms, the recreational zone, the cafe and the board rooms — are designed keeping in mind the functionality of the space, without compromising on the creativity!
The brand aspires to build a culture which is in sync with their core values and beliefs — ownership, learning, agility, courage, intensity, team and communication. The space reflects and resonates the basic ethos of the brand. As the brand believes in creating much more than tedious work lives, there are recreational corners that focus on creating destress zones that help rewind life back with cosy corners that permit your senses to take a much needed break by plugging in your favourite playlists.
The training rooms are home to the success stories and interactive training sessions that leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of motivation. The adventurous meeting rooms call for the enthusiastic mountaineers to climb their way to glory. The ethos that support the trekking expedition is that with collective efforts and a sense of determination every mammoth task is worth scaling and achieving.
As the work space believes in creating much more than tedious work lives, there are recreational corners that focus on creating stress-free zones that help rewind life back with cosy corners that permit your senses to take a much needed break by plugging in your favourite playlists to listen to music that soothes you, on loop. The work space even boasts of a fully-equipped gym and lounge.
All in all, the entire work space exudes a zealous energy comparable to none, bringing in a broad scope for creativity and ambition. The Pepperfry office is every designer’s delight, providing a keen view of decor in its very work space whilst having an astonishing finish that marks excellence and perfection.
