The new destination building "Hikarie" opened in Tokyo's Shibuya area April 2012. Jamo was asked to design the central lounge for a members-only workspace for creative types called "8/". Located on the building's 8th floor and produced by the company Kokuyo Furniture, the lounge is designed around the idea of serving as a "town square". "8/" is intended to be new type of workspace that builds an organic community around it and puts into practice the idea of a Shibuya-style way of working. With this in mind, Jamo felt it was important to set the space up with a sense of openness and a relaxing atmosphere. For example, elements from city parks are built into the space, such as seating that comes from the same kind of benches used in New York's Central Park, classically styled stairways, and cubicles built with the feel of a classic telephone booth. At the same time, Jamo creates various "scenes" where communication can spontaneously come to life and where a "town square" is recreated with high degree of flexibility and public openness.

2012年4月26日に開業した渋谷ヒカリエ。その8階にあるクリエイティブスペース「8/」に、コクヨファニチャー株式会社が誕生させたメンバー制オフィス「Creative Lounge MOV」。 弊社はそのオープンラウンジの設計を担当。空間のデザイン・コンセプトは、"街の中心にある広場"。有機的なコミュニティを創出し、渋谷らしい働き方を実践する新しいワークスペースに相応しいラウンジとして、開放感とリラックスできる雰囲気を重視してプランニング。例えば、NYのセントラルパークで実際に使用されているベンチを什器として採用、クラシックなテレフォンブースをイメージしたボックス席や階段を作るなど、公園にある装置を空間に落とし込みながら、さまざまなシーンを演出し、自発的なコミュニケーションが生まれる、フレキシブルで公共性の高い"広場"を再現した。
