Gruppo Campari Office

When commissioned to design the new Toronto offices for Italian liquor brand Campari, our brief was simple - 'create a space which captures the spirit of the company and inspires the people who use it'.

To achieve this mandate we looked to the past to inform the future. Initially captivated by Campari’s iconic posters – particularly those designed by Italian Futurist’s Fortunato Depero and Bruno Munari – we quickly found ourselves immersed within a rich archive of creative collaborations spanning over 100 years. The other aspect of the brand which fascinated us was the secret recipe which makes up Campari – which to this day only a handful of people know. And it's from these two divergent points that we looked to distill a singular visual and spatial idea.
