A Look Inside Origami Risk’s New Chicago Headquarters
Origami Risk is a software company based in Chicago, Illinois, that develops risk management information system focused on ease-of use, performance and dependability. Recently, Origami Risk reached out to interior design firm Eastlake Studio to design their new headquarters in Merchandise Mart Plaza, Chicago.
“In their new Merchandise Mart space, visitors are greeted by a dramatically lit logo with a flock of 3-D printed cranes in the reception. Angular forms and folded planes are woven throughout the space, subtly playing off origami folding patterns. Completely located in open office workstations, staff enjoy multiple options for collaboration, from private phone booths to casual meeting areas in the cafe, where people organically bump in to each other. But Origami’s new office does more than bring the company together into a fresh, new workplace — it re-establishes and markets Origami’s brand and culture”, says Eastlake Studio
