When MOI’s Richmond team made the move to relocate, they sought a space that provides a great place to work while also being an ever-evolving showroom for the future of furniture. Long-time partner Baskervill not only subletted the first-floor space, but also became an important design partner who helped with many facets, including construction documentation and administration. MOI, Baskervill, and SMBW partnered to design a functional workplace highlighting select products and accessories for potential clients. The expansive ceiling height provided an acoustical challenge solved by MOI manufacturers’ innovative products to mitigate sound in the open office environment. The showroom harbors a sense of collaboration and creativity with a wide array of meeting spaces that also highlight MOI’s many product lines.
The employee feedback was integrated into the final design solution to create a space that better represents the culture, builds upon our partnerships, and shows how we can better serve our clients. Integrating Herman Miller and Knoll brands into a shared space help to foster an environment that follows MOI’s core tenet – work, live, stay.
