Lonely Planet Melbourne by Siren Design

Siren Design’s quirky and inventive design for Lonely Planet’s new iconic headquarters in Melbourne, is a veritable ‘world on a shoestring’. Let the interactive brand journey begin!

  • Sliding walls link adjoining Japanese-themed boardrooms.

  • Borneo-themed break out booths feature digital and living plants as well as tree root carpet

  • Lonely Planet blue sets off a monochromatic Melbourne mural in the light filled upstairs kitchen.
