Ampersand Structure designed an area that honors the model identification and tradition of OXO for his or her worldwide workplaces in New York Metropolis, New York.

In creating an area for award-winning product designers, we knew that particulars had been vital. OXO and Hydro Flask are corporations of makers, and we wished their area to mirror the worth that they place on sincere, uncooked supplies and easy, considerate design. A palette of pure wooden, cold-rolled metal, and felt accents complement the concrete ground and industrial-loft ambiance. Engineered wooden flooring was reimagined as a wall end that carries a streamlined heat all through the workplace. On its approach, it serves because the backdrop for site-specific installations: a group of discovered gloves symbolizing that OXO’s instruments are made for all arms, a emblem made from a whole bunch of screws, and a large pegboard with cabinets for displaying iconic merchandise.

Taking a cue from OXO’s custom of discovering sudden methods to make on a regular basis experiences higher, we helped reimagine the corporate’s workflow, with an eye fixed to the necessity for transporting and storing samples and prototypes. Customized furnishings, designed along with MASH Studios, incorporates adjustable desks and a cellular cart for the last word flexibility of every OXOnian. The area is stuffed with diversified and modifiable venues for collaboration: assembly rooms of a number of sizes, moveable partitions to briefly divide area, and a “water tower” that splits into assembly pods. The area boasts of three kitchens designed for every thing from informal lunches, work classes, city halls, events, pictures, and product testing simply to call a couple of.
