Allsteel Boston

Allsteel  Boston Showroom
Boston, MA

The design for the Allsteel showroom in Boston was guided by its location. Boston Harbor is visible from the space, so the concept of water and buoyancy were celebrated. At the same time, very important functional parameters and user experience profiles informed our approach to the space, and balanced the conceptual inspiration. The ultimate goal of the design of the space was for the concepts and the functionality to be presented in such a relevant, compelling, and accessible way that potential customers would be able to see themselves in the space.

Repeated critical activities and work processes create value for companies. This concept is the guiding idea behind the design for the Allsteel’s Neocon 2017 showroom. Actual customer solutions and stories are crafted into an overall experience designed to connect visitors to the Allsteel brand. The ultimate goal of the design of the space is for the concepts to be presented in such a relevant and compelling way that customers will be able to see themselves in the space, and will want to work in the settings.

For Allsteel’s 2016 Neocon space, the customer experience is a tightly choreographed journey around the concept of turning insights into action. Allsteel realizes that insights without action are meaningless, so their launching of an exhaustive global research review around knowledge worker productivity necessitated physical manifestations of the insights presented in the study. The ultimate goal of the design of the space is for the research to be presented in such a relevant and compelling way that customers will be able to see themselves in the space, and will want to work in the settings.

The downtown satellite office and event space (located in the Lodo neighborhood, a block from Coors Field) is intended to be the "brand beacon" for their larger suburban location, a marketing tool for the company and a resource for designers and customers alike. The concept revolves around the idea of disruption, specifically Steve Job's design brief for the Snow White Project (the seven components that eventually became the Macintosh computer): "I want Bob Dylan songs." In this case, that means the design will be poetic and emotional; provocative and disruptive; innovative and adaptable.

This client, a co-working facility marketed to professional services entrepreneurs, creates connections. In the design of their Wall Street space, the team celebrates literal and figurative connections of all kinds. The ceremonial stair connects three floors, the wood and glass cladding of the stair slides between floors, and spaces adjacent to the stair create moments for serendipitous connections between people.

In this downtown expansion space for a suburban-based technology company, the design team took inspiration from the treehouse to create a space for innovative thought and creative customer support. The teams that will be housed here create the technology that this company uses, and market that technology to customers. Unexpected elements like a planted ceiling plane are intended to inspire creativity in current employees, while attracting new talent to the company.

This client's proprietary software platform takes data and gives it a human voice. As such, the company exists at the overlap of technology and people. In the design of their new space, areas where activities overlap are celebrated. The use of Chicago Bauhaus architecture as the aesthetic driver of the project gives the company an unexpected local inspiration, while speaking to the innovation that the architectural style represents.
