Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

One of our favorite parts about moving in to our new space is picking out the furniture. Many of the new pieces are from Herman Miller and it felt like Christmas when all the boxes arrived.

We love the simplicity of the Setu Side chairs. The instruction manual says, “Sit down.”

Under Construction

hello design new studio

Hello has been growing at a rapid rate and we’ve been on a quest for a new agency space. We found a spot that is double the size of our current space and are happy to see our designs slowly come to life for our new office.

Since we designed and built all the previous Hello spaces, we were able to take the learnings from the first two spaces and apply it to our new one, figure out what works for us, and create a workplace that fosters creativity – especially when it comes to desk space.

We custom designed our desks to be integrated and equipped with an open power and data tray to avoid a wire nightmare on the floor. Desk spaces are given enough distance to hold informal meetings at each person’s area, which aren’t separated by cubicles or walls. With 20-foot ceilings and skylights, we are embracing an open studio. It’s about efficiency and transparency.

The new office is still under construction but here’s a sneak peek on our progress.
