Casumo is an award-winning online casino formed in 2012. Casumo`s brief revolved around a design approach which seeks to shape a creative and playful office environment. The reception area was to be no exception: Quoting Casumo: “We could have chosen a normal squared reception desk, but we chose a jellybean instead, We could have had a normal door, but then we wouldn`t have a good reason to have those Game of Throne guys here for the opening.”
The main three design elements that define the space are the reception desk, the suspended fixtures and the main entrance door. These were sculpted around Casumo`s Fat and Cute design philosophy to create an eye-catching entrance to their home or castle as they prefer to name it.
The materials of all the main furnishings are curated to achieve a cohesive look, with a craftsman`s precision in shaping the furnishings. The teak main entrance door is designed to symbolically engrave Casumo and its stories within the surface of the door making it look like it came out of a Peter Jackson film. The suspended copper light fitting overhangs the jellybean and the welcoming reception area.
For this innovative and unique project, we have created timber entrance door, timber internal doors, reception desk, bathroom units, kitchenette, lockers, timber ceiling with mesh, desk planters, grille unit, cupboard unit, merchandise display, ambassador desk, payment desk and the bar.
This project was designed by Forward Architects.
