The last couple of months, we’ve published several articles on office design. We’ve had experts share their trend predictions, we’ve seen how design is about furniture and space planning, and we’ve also seen how renowned companies around the world have implemented design trends to their spaces.
Today, we’re featuring a company that used its clients and customers, as opposed to trends, as inspiration for their renovation project.
“Drawing from the styles of some of its first customers, Bond Street renovated and decorated its conference rooms, so that each room reflected the characteristics of these small businesses.”
Designing and decorating according to the tastes and likes of clients is a considerable way in which to assure that clients and customers feel comfortable in your space. Though Bond Street is not a workspace provider, their example can help you figure out how to best design your space, both so that your members feel comfortable and also because we know that productivity in the workplace can highly be influenced by design and personality type.
Maryana Grinshpun was in charge of the design and here’s what Bond Street had to say about the finished project:
Description of Rooms:
Bond Street recently moved into a new office on Greenwich Street in New York City that has ample room for creative approaches to the design of our new space. When we considered the conference rooms, we decided to decorate each using the styles and characteristics of each of our earliest customers, as a way to remind ourselves of our beginnings as a company and reinforce our core mission of supporting small businesses.
Each room is decorated in accordance with the look and feel of five of our earliest customers. The end result has been a great collection of conference rooms, each one being unique to all of the others. The five businesses that were used as inspiration for these rooms are Bec Brittain, Gin Lane, AvroKO Designs, United By Blue, and The Smile. We like how the finished spaces contain furniture, color schemes, and decorations that embody the small businesses that inspired the rooms.
As you’ll be able to see from the pictures in the slideshow below, the fact that Bond Street drew its inspiration from clients doesn’t mean that they strayed away too far from current design trends. In the pictures we can see how each room applies some of the trends that design experts predicted for this 2016. The new Greenwhich Street office features designated lounge areas, use of white tones, use of bold colors and patterns, their decoration and furniture departs from the standard squares and rectangles, and they also bring the outdoors in with several plants and a couple of nature-inspired paintings.
