Barclays approached us to assist with the design and installation of a brand new co-working space in New York called 'RISE' (read more about this space here >). This space would feature key facilities for businesses to use such as a speaker's platform, communal offices, photography studio, cafe and other areas that could be used by businesses to connect, co-create and scale.
Barclays wanted our input to primarily be signage solutions and displays throughout the space. Working closely with their team, we prototyped and produced a series of displays and tools to be utilised by the businesses to include a wall installation which offers businesses a space to attach key communication pieces, large multi-purpose leaning boards inset with various media such as dry wipe, mirrors, peg board, cork board etc for businesses to use as visual tools and enhancement, and general direction signage for the building. The multi-purpose boards were all encased within oak frames and sat on bespoke oak feet for stability.
We are now at Phase 2 for the NY space, extending to the second floor of the premises, and will be rolling out the elements at other global sites in the future.
