Presenting an intriguing glimpse of the future in a vibrant, dynamic, and tech-savvy setting was the premise for Perkins&Will when designing the corporate interiors for the future capital company, 2Future. Focused on developing businesses and individuals with the potential to transform the future, the company chose the Itaim Bibi neighborhood, in a building offering a privileged view of Avenida Brigadeiro Faria Lima. Exploring organic lines and a neutral color palette complemented by a bright and lively shade of blue, the 955 sqm space serves the purpose of welcoming clients and visitors, hosting workshops and meetings, and providing a comfortable workspace for daily activities.

Our intention was to depict what we envision the future to be, in a friendly and inviting manner, while we are still living in the present. To intensify this feeling, we hung planters, simulating the reach of tree canopies.
The meeting room dividers can be moved to expand the space, enabling informal meetings, workshops, and other activities that foster interpersonal relationships. An existing outdoor space in the building was used to create a balcony with built-in wooden benches, surrounded by greenery, creating a dialogue between the corporate environment and the Itaim Bibi landscape.
Moving from the lobby to the left, the team has access to the facilities most frequently used in their work routine, such as individual workstations, a wellness area, quiet lounge, monitoring room, partner’s office, and family office. The surfaces take on sinuous shapes, highlighted by shades of white and vibrant blue, reminiscent of a blank canvas inviting creativity or even clouds drifting lightly in the sky, reinforcing the concepts of lightness, creativity, and fluidity.
