Located in the South Park neighborhood of San Francisco, Instagram’s offices have been developed by local office Geremia design. Influenced by the social media company’s branding, the design team has brought together a collection of retro furnishings establishing a relaxed office environment.
Flooded with natural light, the space provides a welcoming and intimate setting: natural materials such as wood and leather are complimented and offset by the use of reflective metallic surfaces.
A collection of vintage cameras has been curated forming the focal point of the project, emphasizing the tech company’s ethos and brand language. To further accentuate the collaborative spirit of the organization, a series of communal meeting points are dispersed throughout the internal fabric of the plan.
“The design for the Instagram office was inspired by their branding. We created a custom coffee station, built an inventory of retro furniture, and curated a vintage camera collection, which is on display on the lobby” says Lauren Geremia principal designer and founder of Geremia Design.
