New Red Bull office gets quiet launchPosted by Trevor

Contrasting its public image, an energy-drinks firm has quietly opened its brand new office space in New York, USA.
Red Bull is synonymous with all things adrenaline fuelled, from its energy drink, advertising campaigns, its Formula 1 association, and extreme sports sponsorship. However, the new workspace is more low key than many may assume.
For one, the space lacks branding. The worldwide famous Red Bull logo is nowhere to be seen; externally or internally. This is a key part of the design element, as is the style of the entire facility.
Not constricted by a defined space, a flexible office is very much the order of the day. This means that the firm can make the office fit its needs, as the workspace can be adapted and changed on a daily, weekly or even hour-by-hour basis.
It is not just the layout and lack of corporate colours and branding that makes the space work for the firm though. Holding 60 workers at the moment, the Manhattan office space has the potential for double that number across its 16,800 sq ft offering. With mezzanine flooring too, it has somewhat of a gallery feel to it.
This is echoed in the office flooring, which is a stark concrete. The walls too are whitewashed and clean. It is all offset by the vibrant colours from the office furniture, which themselves take their cue from the mid-nineteenth century.
Altogether, it is a space that aims for creativity and productivity, which is a trend that many firms aspire to across the world today.

Having an office with a wide-open space with all departments together can sometimes cause a lot of noise with different projects happening simultaneously. Having partitioning systems installed in an office doesn’t mean just having separate spaces in the office for different departments, partitioning can also create a professional meeting room. There are many different designs of office partitioning which our experienced team can both design and install, frameless glass partitioning, demountable partitions which has sound attenuation,
Having only one meeting room can often cause difficulties and frustrations when two meetings are scheduled in at the same time and this is where operable walls can really come in handy and prove to be extremely efficient. When in use, they create a structural wall splitting up a room and when they are no longer required they can be folded or stacked against the wall to give back the original open space.
Many offices don’t get refurbished for many years after they’re first completed, so 2017 may be the year that your office deserves a well-earned refurb, even if it is just a lick of paint! There’s nothing better than kick-starting the new year with a brand new looking office ready to get back into the swing of things after the festivities. Companies often have a business plan for the year ahead and if you’re planning on growing yours,
Having an area in the workplace to go during breaks and lunch hour has many benefits for both employees and employers. It is important to have some time during the working day to switch off from work and reboot, ‘A study of office workers and managers by Staples discovered that even though 66 percent of employees spend more than eight hours a day at work, more than a quarter of them don’t take a break other than lunch.
For many office workers, sitting at a desk all day typing away on a keyboard and looking into a computer screen seems to take up the majority of their working hours! For this reason, among others, it is extremely important to provide a working environment that keeps employees feeling happy and uplifted – helping to improve productivity and boost company morale.
