White Plains, New York
A global leader in the biscuit and confectionary business whose motto, “We promise happiness in every bite,” inspired designers of its North American headquarters to create a fun, lively, innovative, and engaging environment. Pladis, named for the star constellation Pleiades, and which calls its 26,000 worldwide employees “pladisians,” markets Godiva chocolates and Carr’s biscuits, among many other brands. The company was looking to combine staff from two U.S. offices, as well as create a space that would represent branding materials for the parent company and the individual companies it represents. The client wished to incorporate the Pladis story and create a work environment for employees to reach their full potential. To achieve workplace vitality, designers created distinguishing graphics in fresh primary colors, capturing the company and individual brand stories. Contemporary furnishings in bold colors and warm woods invite employees to collaborate and create. The result is a lighthearted, productive space that will position the company for growth.
