CBRE contracted Fusion on behalf of their tenant Workable, who was moving from a smaller office in a brick-and-beam building in Fort Point, to a full floor of a high-rise in the Financial District. Fusion was tasked with designing a space that spoke to Workable’s brand, nodded to their European values, and inspired the employees of their fast-growing company.
Workable’s style resonated well with the industrial look that was inherent in their previous office. Fusion accomplished this with exposed concrete floors and open ceilings in the reception and large café area. The carpets selected for the suite are reminiscent of textiles, and the doors of offices and conference rooms are a light stained wood. The café area hosts a large custom island designed to function seamlessly for daily catered lunches. Fusion selected an eclectic collection of furniture pieces from a variety of vendors to create an industrial chic vibe in the café, collaborative areas and the executive offices. The 360-degree view of the city is enhanced by the dark colored exterior walls, and all enclosed rooms feature full glass fronts to maximize natural daylight throughout the space.
As soon as you step off the elevator, you are surrounded by Workable blue and a collection of icons. Blinker, the graphic division of Fusion, designed custom wall graphics throughout the space that integrate Workable’s brand colors, logo, and icons used in their standard marketing materials. In the café, Blinker designed a custom calendar wall with chalkboard pieces for the Workable team to note holidays, birthdays, special events, and the daily lunch menu. The graphics throughout the space truly enhance the design by identifying the company as a brand and reinforcing their values.
