The designer’s description

SanDisk is a global, innovation-led technology company. For its India headquarters in Bangalore, we were asked to enhance the space through environmental graphics that would have an “Indian” essence – work with the brand colours and integrate seamlessly in a contemporary space, appealing both to a global and local audience.

Kolam is a folk art that is hand drawn at the entrance of most homes in South India to usher in good fortune. Composed of rice ­our, lines and curved loops are drawn around an underlying grid of dots.

Bringing together contrasting aesthetics – rational/systematic (the grid) and decorative (­uid looping lines), the Kolam forms the basis of our design.

The Kolam grids were used to create a varied palette of patterns, signage and way ‑finding graphics.

The versatile grid allows for significant variety in form and scale while maintaining a consistent identity throughout the building.
