Spotlight on a uniquely atmospheric and engaging café facility designed by Summertown for Daimler’s Dubai office.
The Daimler MENA office in Dubai encompasses Daimler’s commercial vehicle businesses across the Middle East and North Africa. Summertown has worked on several phased projects at the office, including the transformation of an existing training facility into a new canteen seating 150 employees.
Daimler requested an industrial café design that paid homage to its commercial cars and vehicles. One stand-out feature is a glass-covered car service garage pit in the floor stretching almost the length of the canteen, displaying Daimler’s automotive parts and accessories.
The industrial fixtures, lighting and furniture were selected not just to create a particular aesthetic effect, but also to create a unique atmosphere for dining and socialising that is vastly different from a typical office workspace.
