Gensler designed a floating cube art feature for the 2-story lobby in the new North American corporate headquarters for BASF. Eventscape was contracted to engineer, fabricate and install this feature of over 100 - 6” and 4” square custom colored acrylic cubes that cover an area of 225 square feet.
For its North American regional headquarters, chemical company BASF engaged Gensler to design a progressive and sustainable workplace environment that reflects their vision, brand and culture.
The architect requested a random placement with each cube spread vertically covering a 12” x 12” grid space. Eventscape’s designers engineered a wood template for the installers, designed to incorporate overhead ceiling lights. This was positioned on the floor providing laser points to the ceiling which ensured precise hanging point locations for the suspended cubes.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
