Mary Kay

Shanghai, China

With a new corporate presence in Asia, Mary Kay sought to establish a strong brand identity in its Chinese headquarters. Gensler offered Mary Kay a layout system that allows the cosmetic company to expand its office step-by-step, accommodating growth in an emerging market. Inspired by the shape of a rose petal, the lobby's ceiling and wall are one continuous curve that envelops visitors upon entry. Open workspaces, still uncommon in China, maximize natural light and collaboration.
