As the workplace landscape shifts, so do the perspectives and desires of building owners and tenants. We were awarded this project at 175 W Jackson to create two fully furnished suites for potential tenants to tour, with versatility in mind. Though approached with an initial concept, the project evolved into a symphony of light and organic textures, with furnishings that create pockets for team huddles while still allowing for expansive depth and separation of purpose.
Enticing potential tenants with ethereal, strikingly coastal hues, we selected modular pieces like the Keilhauer Meander, which moves through the common area spaces like warm sand and can be reconfigured as needed. Also drawing from the motif of geology, the marbleized Trieste Coffee Table and Blu Dot Bumper Ottomans resemble stones you’d find near the water. Teknion workstations are configured with azure privacy panels and Power Spines to minimize any intrusion of unsightly technology cables in this tranquil escape.
At the heart of downtown Chicago, where cement and silver reign supreme, emerges this beautiful, botanical oasis designed to invoke a sense of warmth and organic harmony.
It’s no wonder our client, Brookfield Properties, voiced these accolades, “[Office Revolution] worked extremely well…exceeding our expectations through the entire process from preliminary design to final installation. Their coordination and communication were fantastic.” We’re beaming, not only from the compliment but with the knowledge that our client leased the furnished space promptly thereafter.
