When the award-winning digital marketing agency, Logical Position, needed office furniture for their new suburban Chicago location, we knew we were the perfect fit. With a growing team, our client was excited about the new, significantly larger space.
We were excited to get started on this project, accustomed to thinking outside the box to provide custom designs, while still thinking economically. We began by taking an inventory of existing pieces and tagged what could be repurposed for the new office and what could be decommissioned or donated. After reviewing blueprints of the new office carefully, we hosted several client meetings to discuss goals and a vision for the new space. With a solid understanding of our client’s wishes and needs, we began space planning to create an ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing environment for employees.
Shortly after finalizing the furniture order, the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Supply chains were chaotic and unpredictable, but luckily, we had decided to use a considerable amount of pre-owned inventory, resulting in extremely short turnaround times. Working closely with Logical Position’s construction team, Morgan/Harbour Construction, we took the lead on project management of all furniture, installation and space planning design.
Collaboration was key when designing the layout for their new space and we included ample lounge furniture – such as the Compel Zoey loveseat, Compel Dot pouf ottoman and Coalesse Await Bench – for employees to casually gather throughout the workday. Clusters of bench style workstations with removable acrylic dividers were selected and finished with crisp white surface tops and espresso filing cabinets and casegoods that ground the space. Sizeable boat-shaped conference tables with slab bases provide a fresh and affordable take on the traditional conference room design, while providing ample space for employee meetings.
Ultimately, this office is a unique blend of pre-owned and new furniture. Using our tried and true “high low” approach results in a truly custom look and feel that our clients can be proud of for years to come. Rework is a full service, one-stop-shop solution for everything involving office furniture, and – since our client consolidated design, installation and furniture selection with us – we were able to move swiftly to ensure the project was completed despite hurdles the pandemic threw our way.
