Staples Velocity Lab

Cambridge, Massachusetts

Staples’ Velocity Lab co-locates mobile and E-commerce teams, and serves as a hub of innovation and celebration of the Staples brand. To enhance the brand’s visible presence in Cambridge area, the Gensler design team used large-scale graphics and bold color.  The informal planning structure includes a reception area that doubles as a kitchen, individual workspaces that are located along a central spine of open and closed meeting spaces and video conferencing and brainstorming rooms. Combinations of stationary and interactive components energize the workspace and allow employees to personalize the environment, while inviting multidisciplinary teamwork through the exchange of fresh ideas.
