For the seventh WIX.COM office in Vilnius project, INBLUM created a unique office space dedicated to events and other supplementary functions that support the adjacent main WIX office. Previously a cinema, the building's history inspired the project with the new functions paying tribute to the former cinematic programming. There are two main areas in the space. The first is a flexible event hall – CINEMA, the second, called WIX WHAAAT, is a multifunctional area, conceived as a lobby lounge outside a cinema hall, equipped with a coffee bar, pop-up store, library, general hang-out area, informal meeting, and an area to host a party. Other functions include a beauty parlour, rooms for meditation and massages, a bicycle repair room, and sleeping pods. WIX WHAAAT is an intersection between work and relaxation, enhancing the office environment with rejuvenating functions and a vibrant atmosphere. Unfortunately, due to the situation caused by the pandemic and the consequential pause on events, the CINEMA hall installation has not yet been fully realized as planned with cinema seats. Instead, it was reimagined as a temporary working area, with its very own working in the cinema feel.
