Kimball Office and 76ers Announce the Opening of Innovation Lab

Philadelphia 76ers Innovation Lab ribbon cutting event

The Sixers Innovation Lab Crafted by Kimball officially opened the doors to its 8,000 square-foot workspace located in Philadelphia, PA. Kimball Office co-founded the lab, in part, to better study the changing work patterns and emerging challenges of high growth, fast paced work environments. “The rapid pace of change is compounding workplace challenges related to density, privacy, space optimization and general productivity in the workplace”, states Wendy Murray, director of marketing at Kimball Office. “The real-time data from the lab will enable us to make faster decisions, as we work toward integrating technology and intelligence into our brand’s portfolio.”

The Innovation Lab is intended to incubate and accelerate the development of new businesses. Since the lab’s announcement last spring, they have received hundreds of applications from across the globe. On Tuesday, July 18th, they announced the inaugural companies who were selected to join the lab. Kimball Office and the Sixers both receive a small equity position in the hatched companies, and they plan to expand the number of companies participating in the lab, over the next few months.

“Our partnership with the Sixers and our joint creation of this lab epitomizes the thought leadership, and genuine innovation that is fueling the success of Kimball Office” states Mike Wagner, President of Kimball Office. “We couldn’t ask for a better place to host prospective clients, to showcase our latest in product innovation, and provide a real-life view of how Kimball Office researches and improves workplace performance and enhances corporate culture.”
