Delhi NCR, 15th December, 2023: boAt, India’s leading wearable and audio brand, today announced the opening of its new office space in Gurugram, India. The 22,000-square-foot office, designed by Space Matrix, is a vibrant and energetic space that fosters an inclusive environment that nurtures creativity, imagination, and collaboration among its diverse crew.
The workspace matches the unique work culture at boAt that promotes self-discovery, blends diverse workstyles and ideologies, and enhances employee engagement. From the moment one enters the office, the design weaves a captivating narrative of boAt’s journey, truly reflecting the brand’s ethos and identity. The workspace showcases a range of exciting spaces, including themed rooms inspired by boAt’s passion points, flexible work settings, and engaging community spaces. By seamlessly integrating elements of nature, the workspace establishes a refreshing and stimulating connection between the indoors and outdoors.
The workspace boasts of several amenities that are typically found in ‘third spaces’ like cafés and clubs, such as a cafeteria inspired by a bar lounge, an amphitheatre setting, a game & leisure zone and more. This allows employees the choice to work the way they want, take a pause and relax and socialise with colleagues during and outside of work hours, amplifying boAt’s culture of collaboration, creativity and innovation. The overall design of the workspace is bold and young, with a focus on creating a welcoming and inclusive environment. The use of bold colours, graffiti, unique textures, and eclectic furniture creates a space that is both fun and functional.
