Software designer Synegen Inc. recently celebrated the opening of its new home office in Itasca, signaling a new era for the company and the relaunch of its brand.
The new 8,000 square foot, loft-like office space is located at One Pierce Place. The pace offers swirling metallic-coated concrete floors, linear designed carpet squares, glass modular walls with embedded flat screen televisions, boutique-hotel style furniture, and work spaces that defy the predictability of the traditional office cubicle. A game room offers a diversion to Synegen's employees who often need a break from the glare of the computer monitor.
"I wanted our space to be fresh and uncluttered, a place where our employees are comfortable and can reach their most creative potential," said Synegen founder Steve Karlovitz. "Most office spaces are relics -- dated and monotone. How can that stimulate creativity and energy?" Every material was carefully chosen to simulate movement. From the moment you enter the suite, you are compelled to proceed through the space. The curvature of the ceiling, the winding concrete path, the directional lines in the carpet -- it's fluid, just like technology. "Our designer says it's more 'chic' than tech. I say it's refreshingly out of the ordinary," he added
Karlovitz founded the firm in 2001 with four employees, two clients, and a 300-square-foot office. Boasting a list of national and international clients, Synegen is now considered by its clients and peers to be the premier provider of exceptional technology services.
