       When Caterpillar's senior representative from the United States visited their new Shanghai office, he said that it was the most Caterpillar-like and at the same time the most beautiful office they had ever had.

       The design incorporates glass with semi-transparent bulldozer tracks, framed in cherry wood verneer with black accents, that curve in an ellipse, penetrating the yellow space and dividing it into offices and rooms. The specially designed custom-made furniture brings to mind Caterpillar machinery. Pivoting desks, heavy wooden screens and carpet designs imitate the shape of Caterpillar's elevated sprocket tractors.
