InOasis stands for Industry Oasis, and we call it IO for short. IO is not just a place, but it is a wonderland that we are trying to build with new philosophy.
Prior to the IO days, it was a manufacturer of automobile parts with 6 big factories running 24 hours 7 days a week. When we pioneered the business in Yung-Kung Industrial District as one of its first tenants, there were still farmlands all around the complex. 30 years have passed in the blink of an eye. With the environment drastically changed in all perspectives, we are now motivated to embark a new voyage.
We started with giving the place the new identity of InOasis in 2018. Auto-parts manufacturing has become history. With IO we are inspired to become the industry that combines the elements of Production, Arts, and Life, and achieve the shared value and vision through the circulation of energy in goodness, kindness, and beauty. IO is a qualified food manufacture with current focus in Coffee Roasting. The 0.5 acre green space in the middle of IO is dedicated to organically grown plants and herbs, accompanied with installation arts and creative projects. It provides a space to listen, contemplate, reflect, and recharge. IO also serves as a platform for organizations, individuals, and public in visual art, performing art, multi media, as well as lectures, productions, exhibitions, special events. "BenFeng E Warehouse" was one of the first spaces to be entirely designated to performing arts. It has hosted many renowned performing artists from both Taiwan and around the world. In all, IO exists as an oasis to rejuvenate in the bustling life.
Why do we create InOasis and what are we trying to achieve with InOasis?
We want to re-evaluate the concept of Work. Work is part of life, but for some, work becomes all of life. In IO, we practice to achieve the balance and renewable energy among Production, Arts, and Life. None of them should be sacrificed or neglected to fulfill another. Instead of the traditional profit-driving mentality, we believe in cultivating the well being that places these three elements as its core.
InOasis is not a lofty idea. To some it might strike as crazy or idealistic, and it definitely takes a significant amount of bold risk-taking and tenacity to step out the comfort zone. We would like to invite you to join us in this journey, and to witness, even participate, in this transformation.
We are inspired to become the industry that combines the elements of Production, Life, and Arts, to create the circulation of energy in goodness, kindness, and beauty.
