Ignite USA is a leading innovator in the beverage container industry and the power-house design team behind the Contigo brand. They pride themselves on delivering innovative designs to meet the evolving needs of their users. As a leader in their field, Ignite developed a patented technology that separates their products from all the rest.
Ignite “Phase II” is the expansion floor to the project’s first phase (also designed by BOX), focusing this time on a calm space that caters to the company’s administrative staff and quiet, head-down work. The goal was to create a design reminiscent of the original build-out, but not an exact match. An inverted design – i.e. swapping ceiling and floor finishes and flip-flopping feature locations – helped to achieve a similar feel without mimicking entirely.
In addition, custom design elements create an eye-catching focus on the company’s product, keeping in stride with the sister space. Floating millwork boxes at multiple glass feature walls display the client’s product proudly. This same detail is incorporated on a larger scale at the expansive wooden entry of the executive conference room.
