Take one step inside homegrown brand Mochi’s new home in d3 and you’ll instantly be transported to an urban nomad’s nest. Here, you’ll find patches of greenery climbing the walls and perched on the corners, touches of natural elements such as wood and straw, and even a cotton-rope hammock.
During Savoir Flair’s visit of her headquarters, Dubai-based designer Ayah Tabari explained her daily rituals, saying, “Checking my e-mails is the first and last thing I do before I leave the office.” And where does she spend most of her time? “On the sofa because it’s so comfy or in the workshop because I love to watch every second of what’s going on.” When it comes to her brand, Tabari truly takes an all-hands-on-deck approach, with every corner of her office space reflecting Mochi’s design aesthetic.

“It was a long process designing this office, so I have to make sure it looks perfect and cozy at all times.”
