ZOMATO | Start Me Up
Via Design has worked with notable Indian statups like Naukri.Com and MakeMyTrip.Com from their early days and taken pride in being a partner in their growth into established, powerhouse companies. Working with Zomato provided us with another opportunity to engage with a exciting startup at a critical juncture of its journey.
Zomato’s decision to move to a spanking new 1,35,000 Sq.Ft space spread over four floors was spurred by its dramatic growth and the need to accommodate its ever growing teams. The move was planned in double quick time and on shoe string budgets. In true start up style, lengthy planning and presentation cycles were abandoned in favour of quick meetings between the designers and the Zomato management teams wherein in pencil sketches and ideas were traded to arrive at finalized design from scratch levels in less than a weeks’ time!
Signature elements of the workspace are the open plan workstations themselves. Shorn of any partitions & screens, the workstations serve as collaborative work + meeting spaces for small & immediate teams rather than personal habitats and sanctuaries for secluded workers. And yes, exciting breakout spaces abound with easy living spaces, communal kitchens and forum spaces that cerate the unmistakeable buzz of a unicorn coming to life!
