Karma HQ: American and Dutch Design Mixed with Scandinavian Simplicity

A loft-style office that paints a picture of playfulness and heavy industrial flair is undoubtedly the most popular choice among budding firms looking for new headquarters. Whether it is on the coast of California or in the heart of New York, major global brands like Google are also responsible for the growth of this trend where the office space seems less and less like a rigid and restrictive space. Gone are the days of boring cubicles, and epitomizing this trend even while creating its own unique style is the Karma HQ in New York’s effervescent Little Italy. Designed by FormNation, the light-filled office combines American and Dutch design influences in a stylish and contemporary fashion.

Spread over 7500 square feet, the breezy office moves away from the strict industrial theme that the place dictated and adopts a style that is a blend of modern American design and classic Dutch influences. A tiled blue and gray walkway sits in the middle of the open office area that holds 40 desks, along with a war room, conference area, relaxation zones and also a spacious lunch space. The lunch zone is unique to the Karma office, as its employees all have lunch at the same time each day and go for a little walk to enjoy their coffee each afternoon.

Handmade pendant lights, smart sliding glass doors and the custom tin ceiling in all its glittering charm ensure that the office is as well-lit as possible. Despite its neutral color scheme, pops of orange enliven the large interior, and one finds a brilliant balance between work and relaxation areas inside this fabulous New York office.
