COMMERCIAL INTERIOR DESIGN FOR IMPROVED NATURAL LIGHT & ACOUSTICS
For over two decades, iTrade Network has provided end-to-end supply chain software to the food and beverage industry. Today, they connect over 8,000 companies and facilitate more than $100 billion in annual industry expenditures. The platform expanded with the launch of the iTradeMarketplace in 2020, helping to forge new trade partnerships, overcome demand gaps, locate suppliers, and combat food crises amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Interior Motions brought the iTrade Network office to new heights by improving the lighting quality, office layout, and functionality of their commercial interior design.
An office should provide a professional, inviting, and productive workspace—and this is what we wanted to create for iTrade Network. While there were many large windows in their original office, there were also many closed-off spaces, dark corners, and absorptive colors that affected the overall environment. Additionally, employees were not in practical proximity to one another. The office required a commercial interior design that was more cohesive, efficient, and inspiring.
Interior Motions started by prioritizing collaboration across departments. We learned how different groups worked together to better arrange the layout for productivity. Pop-up soundproof booths and cubicles were added strategically for better accessibility and a quieter workspace. We also used noise barriers to mitigate traveling sound and ensure privacy between employees. Rearranging furniture around the perimeter opened up the space to more natural light. Our vast network of vendor connections allowed us to work with the original finishes of the building to complement the existing color palette.
We created a layout that was more functional, with better sound management and more natural light. The new interior design spoke to iTrade Network’s appreciation of creativity and simplicity—employees loved to be in the new space.
THE DIRECTOR OF CORPORATE IT, JIM ALMERICO, EXPRESSED SATISFACTION WITH OUR WORK IN THIS TESTIMONIAL:
I was presented a project to completely furnish an entire floor with an extremely tight window. Thankfully, Jennifer and her team from Interior Motions worked side-by-side with me throughout the entire process. Not only did the space look great, but it was installed on-time and on-budget. A wonderful experience and a big thanks to Jennifer, Simon, and Karen for a job well done!!
