Translating the experience of the ocean, sand, air and blue sky to a Manhattan showroom to convey the brand’s essence.
In Mocean Group, a privately owned leader in swimwear design and manufacturing, worked with The Switzer Group to transform their relocated offices at 463 Seventh Avenue into a unique and branded showpiece for their swimwear and a highly functional production facility.

Various special elements were incorporated in order to achieve this including digital and art imagery reminiscent of water, the strategic insertion of a large skylight above the interconnecting, sculptural stair, and a custom reception desk made of Corian with soft undulating curves reminiscent of the ocean. The stretched, high gloss ceiling system gives a calming sense of the sea and the custom-made translucent, wavy glass wall displayed behind the reception area gives the sense of water. Earthy sand tones were selected for the flooring along with an aqua/green palette and modern, nautically themed furniture.

The public showcase areas include the reception area, multiple showrooms and a generous roof garden ideal for entertaining. The light-filled interconnecting stair joins the two floors, and the back-of-house environment includes workstations, private offices, flexible collaborative spaces, and pattern and sewing rooms.

“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”
