About the Project

We started with the UFO premise (Unknow Flying Object) and the project is made of a mutual collaboration space that manifests as a way of inspiration to interpersonal relationships, enabling diverse interactions with the space that cohabit. Redefinition, connectivity and interactivity. The great challenge during the creative process was the importance of interaction between people and spaces, since a business relationship can take place in a coffee store, sitting on a bleacher, attending a workshop, lecturing or relaxing lying in a net, all these experiences are part of the UFO project. The design is related to solutions to problems that go beyond the aesthetic question, you have to take into account how the user will interact with the space around them for networking relationships. It is necessary to analyze the behavior of the public and in this sense UFO Space has as great incentive a diversity of spaces in its program to meet the most varied needs, from the perspective of innovation and as a business generator.

What’s unique about it

We believe that shared workspaces are a market trend that will no longer go back. Nowadays the fact of sharing something is used in various areas of a person's life, and it is not by chance that it has hit the working environment as well. It is true that some foreign countries are more advanced in this experience, which has already become an accompli fact. However, Brazil is drawing an interesting path in this direction. The UFO, in addition to having an advanced structure to the business vision, is prepared to consolidate this "movement" in large scales and we are very proud to design the UFO Space and be part of that development.

The quality of the "acoustic cocoon" surpasses the expectation because even totally integrated to the shared environment it is able to provide a protected conversation.
