New York, New York
Integrating a showroom, office and entertainment space to support a multi-disciplinary business model.
Combs Enterprises sought to establish a New York location to house Sean Comb's office and entertainment suite, a clothing showroom for the Sean Jean fashion arm of the business, and workspace for the music division. The aesthetic, meant to maintain a degree of consistency with Combs Enterprises' LA office, was designed to be timeless, clean and minimalist, with high contrast elements that created a feeling of crisp freshness. High-tech media and images are integrated throughout the space to reflect their mission as well as paintings and photos of Sean and celebrities that tell the story of the enterprise overall. The areas designed included an elevator lobby, reception area, private offices, open work areas, cafe/lounge, clothing closets, boardroom, CEO's office suite and public corridors connecting North and South accesses. The use of glass across office fronts, the lounge and the main conference room as well as open workstations contributes to creating a light-filled and elegant environment.
