Dubai – UAE: Innovative interior disruptor, Design by Mahsa (DBM) will take charge of the entire interior design for the new talabat headquarters in Dubai. 

The 150,000 square feet space is located in a three-storey City Walk mall building and will house almost 2,000 employees within several contemporary and functional workspaces once completed.

In partnership with DBM, the leading food delivery and q-commerce platform, talabat aims to create a conducive workplace where employees can benefit from City Walk’s central location. An appreciation of this vision greatly influenced DBM’s concept of design in creating ergonomically enabling spaces that encourage creative development, spatial flexibility and technology-driven workspaces. 

In line with talabat’s branding, the general concept of design in the space reflects that of the company’s existing offices which are distinctive by the use of open spaces and urban industrial décor elements. The style depicts the nature of the organization – a tech-oriented and entrepreneurial driven company – which will offer offices of the future with holistic, convenient and innovative spaces. This includes elements such as innovation pods, digital team rooms and wireless digital walls to further bring the space to life; while keeping the ‘talabat identity’ in addition to the company’s forward-thinking culture. This is evident in the proposed design where a futuristic story is visibly told by depiction – from motorbikes to robots as well as drones, and eventually to leading to space.

“We’re excited to have Design by Mahsa on board to create the new talabat headquarters. Their wealth of expertise in design paired with their creativity will certainly bring our futuristic vision for the new office space to life. Our people are our key assets and nurturing a culture and fostering an environment that allows them to flourish and be themselves in the workplace has been one of our key priorities.” Tomaso Rodriguez, Chief Executive Officer talabat 

Speaking with excitement about the project, DBM Founder and Design Director – Mahsa Gholizadeh said: “Creative spaces in every workplace are critical key drivers in productivity; and a direct reflection of the corporate culture, which in turn represents a strong indicator of the company’s future direction. We took this into consideration through our innovative design concept for this project. It is our expectation that in lauding talabat’s evolution through DBM’s design, its team members will remember the company’s routes and appreciate with excitement what the future will bring.” 

The vast space also utilizes greenery, vertical height and other organic elements in the design. It also takes advantage of natural lighting in order to promote sustainability, a healthy work environment, in addition to keeping the well-being of the Talabat Team in mind by creating a memorable experience for them.
