After a move from the third to the tenth floor of its DuPont Circle- area building, international contract furniture company, Global Industries tapped HBW Group to build out their new showroom. The mandate was to showcase the company’s commitment to sustainable design in a fresh, modern space. The result is a light-filled showroom enhanced by city views that ably meets LEED Silver requirements.
The space includes a sleek reception area, with a recycled concrete counter paired with a backlit tinted-glass base. Modular FLOR carpets and Trend Q engineered stone tile clad the floors. The extensive showroom offers multiple product-display vignettes.
Light finished and reflective ceiling materials were used for a modern aesthetic, constructing a minimal number of walls so as not to obstruct natural light. The lighting plan ensured that products would be effectively highlighted in the showroom while still meeting LEED standards.
