The Infor firm specializes in enterprising software solutions, being the third in the world at what they do (after Oracle and SAP), and their new headquarters was designed by the architectural practice of VOA in the Flatiron district of New York City.
The Infor CEO’s idea of the office space was quite specific and he wanted a place that was as open to innovation as possible due to the rapidly changing world of software. The space was designed with social collaboration and interaction as the main feature, the CEO Charles Phillips himself working on a laptop at an open table, since there are no offices even for the executives, to allow the employees to have a closer communication with each other.
The office space spreads over two floors and has 48000 square feet hosting the main customer sales center and the corporate headquarters. The reception is on the fourth floor and there are two media walls here with a stair leading to the conference center below. There is also a lounge with a spatial link between the conference center and the open office above it.
