Green Team approached us in order to move their Head Quarters from Tribeca to Midtown in a rush and with limited resources. Besides the 18 head staff, there was also an extensive list of already existing parts, and a good amount of wishes that needed to fit into the new 3000 sq/ft office space around the corner from the Empire State Building. Honeycomb panels, cushioned panels, aluminum bars and aluminum wheels were a part of the list of materials that needed to be reclaimed. The latter were incorporated into a "one size fits all" custom designed workstation that was implemented throughout the space -a social and horizontal approach to office hierarchies. The combination of a new, smart and efficient approach with a reinterpretation of existing materials became a warm and neat office environment for the team to continue growing in.
