Award-winning, multidisciplinary design practice Rapt Studio has completed Adobe's new campus in Lehi, Utah. After El Mac's stunning, commissioned mural was unveiled in November, our interest in the project was piqued. How does a design firm integrate company culture and contemporary art into a singular, integrated workspace?
Rapt Studio CEO calls the Adobe campus a "benchmark project." He says, "We were brought in as an agent of change to showcase Adobe’s existing culture and magnify it through workplace design, drawing upon the company's roots in creativity and innovation to fuel the space. By aligning the interests of Adobe’s customers, employees and leadership, we were able to create a space that is the gold standard for integrated workplaces. Design should solve ongoing challenges, inspire unparalleled performance and connect people and places in a meaningful way."
The final design captures the magic of the software company. The space is filled with graphic reminders of what Adobe brings the world—including images created by artists using Adobe software and original murals by El Mac and graffiti artist Mike Giant.
In addition to the art, employees can blow off steam on the indoor basketball court, rock-climbing wall, and in "The Bunker" game room.
Its just another example of why we sometimes wish we worked in tech.
