A global medical device company with 41 specialties, Cook Medical enables patient recovery and provides doctors with simpler, more effective options. In its sixth project with M Moser, Cook Medical approached the team to implement its modern design standards in Chennai.
An important region in Asia-Pacific, Cook Medical wanted to transform local facilities in India to create a modern integrated office and warehouse that would support future needs. Home to the sales and operations teams, a key aspiration for the new space was to create a sense of collaboration through agile working.
- Transforming the way people work by integrating modern design standards.
- Moving away from traditional cubicles and enclosed offices to an open, agile layout that offers privacy and fosters collaboration.
- Enabling an organisational shift by prioritising economic goals and employee health and wellness.
- Creating a state of the art warehouse to enhance logistics management.

To prioritise health and wellbeing and enhance collaboration, Cook Medical needed to redefine the workplace. Utilising their vast experience working with the business across the globe, the M Moser team was able to quickly propose the most appropriate solutions.
Design options to ensure privacy enable a smooth transition from the traditional office configuration with cubicles and private cabins, to more open-plan work settings.
This includes phone booths and separation planters that function as flexible areas for focused work. Versatile arrangements support diverse individual and collective needs, including team-based agile neighbourhoods.
The open-plan office enables employees to pursue common goals and excellence through collaboration, featuring a range of large pantries, interaction areas, and playful amenities.
Training facilities include the latest video-conferencing technology and presentation and support collaborative, interactive learning. Details such as beehive-style graphics highlight business values and promote team spirit.
A multifunctional space that can be repurposed for town hall meetings and company gatherings incorporates movable furniture and an extendable projection wall, serving as a flexible area with a variety of uses.
Wellness & sustainability
Aligning with WELL standards following work with Cook Medical in Hong Kong, the new office introduces biophilic design and an abundance of natural light. Material selection meets the highest standards of sustainability – from carbon-neutral flooring to LED lighting and energy-efficient ventilation.
Height-adjustable workstations promote wellness by discouraging prolonged static posture. “Parenting” rooms and open terrace seating provide considered levels of comfort for all employees.
A state of the art warehouse
Following modern benchmarks in logistics management, the warehouse features epoxy flooring, controlled temperature ambience, and blackout screens.
“The new logistics centre will ensure prompt delivery to our customers”, shares Vijayan Govindaraman, General Manager, Cook Medical India.
Successfully increasing motivation and productivity, the new space has enabled a transformative shift from meeting economic goals to putting employees at the heart of the design process.
This new hub for collaboration brings Cook Medical’s global brand standards to India through a modern, future-focused approach.
