Mumbai-based ANA Designs completed the Fino Payments Bank project by taking inspiration from its logo, which showcases a ‘STAR’. The studio took the Bank logo as a focal point in the designing layout. Led by Ankit Patel and Ankura Patel-Co-Founders and Directors of ANA Designs, the firm incorporated wellness within the space through the Seven Chakras; which symbolize the values of the client namely, Trust, Reliability, Creativity, Communication, Wisdom, Frugality, and Empathy.

Headquartered in Juinagar, Navi Mumbai, Fino Payments is a bank with a huge digital presence. They are leaders, innovators and implementers of technology solutions for banks, governments and insurance companies. ANA was allowed to execute a project, once again, in a very familiar building, Raheja Mindspace.
Design Layout from Fino’s Logo- The Star
Considering that Fino’s entire business is based on fingerprinting, such as, in biometrics-based digital platform, the Design firm has incorporated that element in the form of stretch fabric ceiling right in the center of the office to get the message across and show that it considers every aspect of the business.
The layout was made taking inspiration from Fino’s logo, the star.
Seven Chakras to Bring Wellness Within the Workspace
The key idea here was to incorporate wellness within the office space through the Seven Chakras; which symbolize the values of the client namely Trust, Reliability, Creativity, Communication, Wisdom, Frugality and Empathy.
Taking the star as the focal point in the design, it has been replicated on the carpet and ceiling design.
Part of the office has been kept semi-open by using baffles and some parts have been finished with grid ceiling to provide better acoustics and aesthetics.
Various carpet patterns derived from the ‘STAR’, have been used to segregate the spaces, break the monotony and add vibrancy to the interiors. The story of collab areas has been conceived and incorporated within the design to promote teamwork and high work efficiency.
The corporate area on the floor has been given a formal yet lively look and feel by the use of subtle greys and brown furniture with a pop of colour.
The services and infrastructure were easy to work around with and considering that we were working in known surroundings, the project sailed smoothly.
