  • HUXHUX Design for Homepolish designed the new offices for creative agency Nike Communications, located in New York City, New York.

    In its 33rd year as one of New York’s leading creative communications agency, Nike Communications engaged premium interior design company Homepolish to design its new 10,500 square foot office space in the heart of lower Manhattan’s buzzing Financial District. A communications agency specializing in the marketing of luxury and prestige brands, Nike Communications leveraged the expertise of interior designer Justin Huxol, Founder of HUXHUX Design for Homepolish, to help imagine the space. In close collaboration with the agency’s president and founder, Nina Kaminer, Huxol created a tasteful space reflective of the agency’s young creative, staff and roster of top-tier clients.

    Designed to inspire creativity and collaboration among Nike’s growing team of 60 public relations and multimedia professionals, Huxol created an open office layout, comprised of communal workspaces and shared work stations. A variety of lounge areas, nooks, and break out rooms were also installed and furnished with couches, work benches and tables to foster collaboration, conversation and team-building among employees. Additionally, two glass-walled conference rooms were added and outfitted with the latest technologies. To create a bright and airy workplace, Huxol used a monochromatic palette that leverages the office’s natural light. In addition to the tonal neutral color, the interior designer incorporated bold black and white elements to make the space feel crisp and clean.

    Health and wellness also play a central role in the new office’s design and amenities. The space features several smart living green walls, which are meant to positively impact employee’s well-being and happiness through biophilic (or nature) design and improvements in indoor air quality. Designed by Naava, the walls combine plants, air purifiers and humidifiers into one. Huxol also layered in living greenery throughout the space to fully allow the positive effects of nature to be realized in the workplace. In the kitchen, wellness features include an advanced GROHE Blue® faucet water filtration system, which provides filtered still, sparkling and fine bubble water, as well as healthy snacks such as fresh organic fruit, raw nuts, and wasabi peas. Additionally, essential oil ultrasonic diffusers by Saje fill the office environment with a wellness enhancing oil blend, which release negative ions to cleanse and purify the air.
