WORLD FAMOUS BRAND NEEDED AV MAKEOVER - FAST
An international retail client behind one of the world’s most famous brands in fashion—whose name must remain secret—needed an extreme makeover to their AV conference/presentation room and they needed it fast Their requirements demanded that the room could be fully reconfigured on extremely short notice and 100% maintained onsite by their team.
The new design had to be as fresh and exciting as their brand and had to be completed within five weeks—from initial consultation to ribbon cutting. And, oh yes—there was a support column near the center of the room. The monitors, cameras, microphone and live presentations had to be visible to all 44 room occupants at all times—without craning their necks.Clearly, this was not a situation where off-the-shelf products could be deployed. So, they sought professional help from the Design Services Team at Salamander Designs.
“The customer came to us with a vision and an idea,” said Sal Carrabba, founder of Salamander Designs, “and our Design Services Team was able to collaborate with them to deliver upon their vision due to our very flexible furniture systems.”
“Because of Salamander’s modular, systems approach to furniture design, we were able to move quickly on the idea and deliver a very high-quality, custom solution in short order to satisfy the customer.”
The solution includes a stylish four cabinet, custom configuration arranged at the center of the room, each cabinet supporting two monitors and a camera. They met the goal of assuring that all participants, regardless of their height or position in the room, could see the displays comfortably and easily. Salamander started by studying the employee work habits, so no adjustment to monitor locations or angles would be necessary to allow every room occupant to participate.
Salamander Designs was able to leverage their renowned systems approach that makes a unique, one-off, 100% custom solution possible. Sal continued, “We are able to design and fabricate—right here in Connecticut—and do it more quickly and in such a way that the customer doesn’t have to pay for expensive engineering costs because of the highly flexible core that we can build on.”
