Libbey, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of glass tableware products, completed their headquarters renovation to address current facility needs for their 180 employees, as well as provide for future workforce growth. Located in downtown Toledo, Ohio, otherwise known as the Glass City, Libbey’s new office space encompasses 51,000 SF on 2.5 floors. The project goal was to use the corporate workspace as a canvas to celebrate the history and process of Libbey glassmaking.
The new workspace is an open, modern environment, allowing natural light to fill the workspace. This is in contrast to Libbey’s old space which featured uninviting private offices, outdated furniture, poor lighting and limited brand communication. New workplace objectives were created to provide an atmosphere which promotes collaboration, increases communication and exhibits Libbey’s brand and history. Throughout the renovated space you experience vibrant color, integrated glass feature displays, and environmental graphics for a contemporary feel. Internally, Libbey references this initiative as project “Clearview”, as they wanted to establish an interactive work strategy with open communication.
