Kimball Office Opens New Boston Showroom Designed By Embarc Studio
Kimball Office, a leading designer and manufacturer of high quality products and solutions for the contract furniture industry, today announced the opening of its newest showroom, which is centrally located in the heart of Boston’s financial district. Designed by the Boston firm Embarc Studio, the showroom draws inspiration from the energy of Post Office Square and the vitality of Congress Street, one of the city’s most active thoroughfares. The showroom officially opened on Thursday, April 28th and is the company’s ninth showroom in the U.S.
“Our Boston showroom is built on the creative pace we established with our award-winning Chicago showroom,” said Wendy Murray, director of marketing for Kimball Office. “Our furniture solutions are designed to drive an experience, and we are thrilled to offer the Boston design community an inspiring place where we can highlight our collections, meet with industry thought leaders and engage in creative activities.”
The Kimball showroom is a dynamic, flexible space that showcases high quality contract furniture against the backdrop of the picturesque Post Office Square. Using this iconic community location as inspiration, Embarc Studio focused on using abstracted natural elements, an open floor plan and engaging materials. The showroom, adaptable for workplace trends of today and tomorrow, is linked together by a number of interior areas – work, library/think tank, café, living room, studios – all of which are anchored with a central pavilion. The pavilion, a central location where Kimball representatives can conduct informal meetings, entertainment, and educational or creative activities, is enveloped in a bold-orange color and includes the town hall and conference areas. Interior walls are interrupted by glass panels with some that lift the walls from the floor giving the pavilion a sense of lightness and others that are placed vertically to allow views through the pavilion to the perimeter windows and beyond.
“From the moment we stepped onto this third floor space and discovered the perimeter window walls, we were inspired by the view and bustle of the square,” said Dartagnan Brown of Embarc Studio. “That instant discovery would guide us through the design process, and inspire our team to pull energy directly from the park through the building’s floor-to-ceiling windows and right into the space.”
The 5672 square-foot showroom is located at 70 Federal Street in Boston and open to industry trade by appointment only between 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday.
