Innovant’s Marketing Department recently toured Philip Johnson’s Glass House. The pastoral 49-acre landscape comprises fourteen structures, including the prominent Glass House (1949), Ghost House, Kirstein Tower, Library, and other notable works built between 1949 and 1995. Two of the structures serve as galleries (see the Sculpture Gallery pictured above), which house a permanent collection of 20th-century painting and sculpture, along with temporary exhibitions.

CORENET YOUNG LEADERS & IIDA ARCHITECTURAL TOUR: BARCLAYS CENTER, BROOKLYN

by Hayley Willson

Last week, I attended the architectural tour of Barclays Center hosted by CoreNet & IIDAThe attendees were IIDA members, as well as CoreNet Young Leaders, including architects, designers, furniture manufacturers, end users, construction and real estate industry members - all under the age of 35.  

The event brought both groups together to network and learn about thoughtful design in a unique commercial space. The tour exposed us to a few unique features of the Barclays Center. These include shower heads in the locker rooms installed at a level that accommodates the height of the basketball players. Also, the Calvin Klein Lounge is filled with the aroma of their signature fragrance, which gets pumped in through the air vents. The Blackberry Lounge features convenient charging stations for cell phones. Finally, the tour ended in Jay Z’s exclusive VIP bar, The 40/40 Club. One notable feature of the space is a wall lined with Ace of Spades Champagne bottles, which lends the space a glamorous vibe.

Thanks to CoreNet and IIDA for hosting a wonderful event!

FORm Review from Wille Design

“For a recent client located in the San Francisco area, we provided the Form product for their command and control centers and in their training area. Form was the right fit for their complexity and ability to manage change over the long term. After the installation was complete, the customer, of their own initiative, expanded the extent of product and areas to receive Innovant’s Form product. I think that speaks for itself. The customer’s IT services team were also extremely impressed with the accessibility and ease of integrating their technology requirements within the consoles. Innovant’s consoles have now been successfully installed in several of facilities with very positive reception in all instances." Read More>
