Kimball Office has partnered with the award-winning San Francisco-based interior design firm Studio O+A to redesign its Chicago showroom. The company’s new showroom experience will be revealed during NeoCon 2014, June 9–11.
NeoCon is North America’s largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors. Studio O+A is owned and operated by the award-winning design team of Primo Orpilla and Verda Alexander.
“To have one of our industry’s most creative and innovative design firms collaborating with Kimball Office is incredibly exciting as we continue designing and planning our customer experience for NeoCon 2014,” said Mike Wagner, general manager of Kimball Office. “Our showroom will be transformed into Studio O+A’s most recent interpretation of cutting-edge design and I feel that, in combination with our existing product portfolio and exciting new product introductions, our customers will not only be impressed, but also quite inspired.”
Kimball Office’s partnership with Studio O+A reinforces its commitment to design and innovation, and this collaboration strengthens the company’s position as an innovative design leader. With Orpilla and Alexander at the helm, Studio O+A has earned countless product and project design awards. Notably, Studio O+A has designed the corporate headquarters for Facebook, Yelp, Evernote, and the Microsoft Research Center.
“There’s a lot of history behind the Kimball Office brand, but now they’re transitioning to a new Kimball Office, one that is fully committed to design while embracing technology,” said Alexander. “We are excited to work with their team at this important moment of transition. The Kimball Office showroom is already a beautiful space. It’s adjacent to the Mart, overlooking the best of Chicago. We will redesign key elements and plan furniture as we would for the most innovative companies for which we have worked. We believe this will set the stage for a new Kimball Office with a vision for the future of workplace that embodies design and technology.”
