Time Inc. sought to make a shift away from being defined as a magazine publisher to becoming a broader media company. This required rethinking how they were working – moving away from a culture of private offices,
eliminating physical barriers between brands, and placing a huge focus on media throughout the workspace, with spaces designed to support creation of new media. In conjunction with Studios Architecture, Bisley was tasked to help create a vibrant, enduring and flexible solution for their varied requirements.
Bisley helped create a colorful, multifunctional environment for personal storage, collaboration and meeting zones, using several ranges to achieve to achieve a beautiful aesthetic as well as a high level of functionality. The
installation spanned six floors, each with its own color palette.
Bisley provided each employee with a MySpace locker, a personal Note pedestal and a Be credenza. The main floor space has alternating lockers and LateralFile units at the end of the desking runs. Be by Bisley was used to create a subtle separation of space while allowing for multiple activities including storage, meeting, presentation and collaboration.
