From live-streaming monitors that nod to one company’s television roots to a major dot.com with a mission to achieve zero-waste status by tracking its progress via open-sourced technology, businesses today are realizing the benefits that come when you blend design with technology.

Designer’s Statement with Lance Amato:
The goal of Vocon’s design was to create an innovative and dynamic environment while presenting a sophisticated narrative of how to feel the comfort of home at your workplace.

With this in mind, we focused on providing different types of gathering and meeting spaces to support formal and informal encounters.
