505 Brannan Street,
To create an activated, inspiring, flexible POPOS (Privately owned public open space) for Pinterest and the community to rendezvous. The furniture layout and its mobility in the space allows you to experience different levels of engagement whether it be one-on-ones, quick meet-ups, casual collaboration around the large community table, or enjoying a private moment with a cup of coffee from The Point.
With the 50,000+ square foot location working as a clean and minimal canvas, our collaborative team designed custom mobile banquettes to support an activated space — a layout intended to be open, mobile and adaptable over time. Think of the space as a Pinterest pinboard and the furniture of pins — a creative plain always open to inspiration and evolution. It brought the community together and created a space for everyone to be inspired and productive.
Planning and development for Pinterest’s custom banquettes spanned over a year, cycling through two design revisions and four mock-ups.
