    VSP Global, one of the world’s leading eyewear and eye care providers, has established a new home in New York City for its research and development team. The Shop East is an innovation lab that focuses on developing technologies for the physical and digital aspects of eyewear and eye care.

    For their new Manhattan location, VSP Global tasked Kostow Greenwood Architects to create a workplace to meet the demands of a team of creative entrepreneurs – designers, materials technicians, and researchers – meant to push the boundaries of industrial design and alternative manufacturing as they revolutionize the eyewear industry.

    The Shop East at VSP Global is a workplace designed to encourage innovation within an organized work environment. The intent was to maintain an open collaborative space, while simultaneously defining zones for different types of work for teams and individuals. In order to achieve their goals, VSP Global selected Meadows Office Interiors to work with Kostow Greenwood to advise on a furniture program, moveable walls, and layout for the new space.

    Working with a team of a few key vendors, Meadows provided a comprehensive product package to complement VSP Global’s modern aesthetic and organizational style and Kostow Greenwood’s architectural interior design. Faced with the challenge of small floor plates, Meadows and Kostow Greenwood collaborated on a furniture layout to pragmatically integrate every piece into the space. The result is a stunning new workplace featuring a clean, modern aesthetic reflective of VSP Global’s forward-thinking global image.
