Zilingo is a fast-growing business platform in the fashion industry that has spread widely across the globe with eight other locations while its headquarters are in Singapore. With one of their locations being Mumbai, and having 20 employees at the time, Zilingo wanted to attract new talent to their company and needed their workspace to announce that for them. They wanted their workplace to be just as kickass as their Headquarters, if not more.

This allowed Zilingo to function at the workspace with ease and fine-tuned the operations to work efficiently.
