About 50 people joined the PRIVATE WiFi team to celebrate the opening of our new Manhattan office. As our business relationships have expanded so significantly, we needed an office that was more convenient for partners and others to meet. The company chose Manhattan because it is also convenient for our staff members, who are scattered around on Long Island and New Jersey, as well as Connecticut. The office is 320 Fifth Avenue, near 32nd street.
Here are some photos of our night:
A great time was had by all at our party on Friday night. The party was scheduled for 4:00 – 6:00, but when I left at 7:30 the champagne was still flowing and the party was still going strong!
Clean, Modern Design
There is a large “bull pen” type space, reminiscent of the open-style offices in Silicon Valley. We also have a smaller conference room space, separated by glass walls, high ceilings, and lots of natural light.
My wife Carol Tambor chose the furnishings. She wanted to maintain a light and airy feeling, so she chose simple glass-topped tables for the desks and clear acrylic chairs. In the center, there is a “living room” space with a couch, two chairs and a coffee table, for informal meetings. Several walls are covered by writable “white board” material for working out ideas or just leaving notes for others.
The glass wall between the open space and conference room provides a feeling of openness. On the back wall, we have a large logo and a scene from the Wolf & Sheep video (see video below), which should lend a playful – yet focused – atmosphere to the space.
