The Gravity – the new collection designed for the MDD.
Against the gravity but with a stability and comfort- the Gravity line takes the idea of a executive desk to a whole new level.
Its minimalist form, inspired by modernist architecture is harmoniously integrated with the state of art technology. Its large worktop with single leg support concealed in the cabinet, is designed as a large “floating” surface, while height adjustment system allows for a smooth change from a sitting to standing position.
Close collaboration between Dymitr Malcew and MDD was essential during the project development stage and its later implementation. The design team created a series of prototypes on the basis of which the end product was built. The mechanism, seamlessly incorporated into the form became invisible. This integration was the biggest challenge of the but simultaneously the drive behind the innovative construction.
The executive desk is complemented with the meeting table and media station, seamlessly transforming into standing position with a press of the button - which is perfect setting for hand-on discussions, brainstorm sessions or remote meetings. Gravity collection is providing maximum flexibility which is a critical factor at today’s workplace. Legless design allows for much more collaborative user experience than the traditional deck.
The form of pods is inspired by a cherry blossom (Hana means flower in Japanese), it’s flower-like form allows for a variety of configurations transforming the phone booth area into vibrant hub dedicated to collaboration, informal meetings and focused work.
Hana acoustic pods work well in even the most dynamic and buzzing environment. The modular structure and ergonomic form of a phone booth offers a variety of possible arrangements that meets diverse needs of a today’s workplace– a place for phone calls or individual focused work, while the triangular shape provides visual and acoustic privacy.
Inspired by triangular flower leaves, its characteristic shape will become a feature of the contemporary office highlighting the interior design and improving employees’ creativity. The idea was to create not only stand alone pod, but the whole collection that brings people together and become a hub, a neighbourhood of the office space. Thanks to modular design arrangements can be easily modified depending on the user needs.
With a motion sensor lighting, quiet fans and transparent ceiling ensuring the light comes from the outside, the Hana booths provide comfort to their users. Sound absorbing material that’s used on the inside as well as outside walls improves not only acoustics of the pod itself, but also of the whole office environment.
Inspired by industrial architecture – Hako soundproof pods improve the acoustic quality of contemporary office spaces. Meaning a box in Japanese, their name refers to traditional Japanese grid systems and highlights the modular look of its structure. The variety of components allows us to create multifunctional architectural pieces: from private pod to meeting room accommodating several people. As the bottom part of the booth is eliminated, it features mobility, meets the needs of disabled people and facilities cable management, and all that without compromising stability. Work comfort is given a boost thanks to automatic light and silent fans. Dividing office space without building permanent walls, Hako ensures privacy during meetings.
Surrounded by nature
Floating house was designed to create the unique and innovative experience of living on water. The floating villa offers luxurious lifestyle while being surrounded by nature.
Large sliding windows maximise views and allow for the landscape to blend with the interior.
Characteristic form and modular structure – Kaiva is a soft furniture system that allows its users to create their own set. The line was inspired by an image of stacked stones. According to the concept, various configurations are based on just few elements, that can be freely combined and modified. As its name means conversation in Japanese, Kaiva can serve both as a place of collaborative work and informal meetings as well as a place of individual focused work. Featuring soft form, touch-friendly fabrics and large colour palette, it introduces positive atmosphere into a workplace. This range can be used in office spaces, hotels, waiting areas and public places.

The main goal of the project was to bring in elements of Japanese culture and reinterpret it in a modern and unexpected way.The interior reflects values such as authenticity, wabi-sabi, modularity and clarity. Warm oak is juxtaposed with raw concrete that represents authenticity and imperfection. Black framed glass partitions are modern interpretation of traditional screens while authentic rice paper is used for glass film.Sliding panels allow for maximum flexibility of space and settings can be changed from open to private.
The main lobby doesn't have a typical reception - instead visitors enter straight into cozy lounge area. Meeting rooms are kept very simple yet inviting bringing in the vibe of traditional Japanese home.
Showroom / Jakarta

The design concept is based on the story of the furniture factory that’s located in the industrial area of Singapore, the idea was to bring the unique and authentic spirit all the way to Jakarta while adding local influences without being too literal. Raw and natural finishes and textures such as cement, wood, felt and metal used throughout the space, communicate honesty, authenticity, craft and the human approach.
