This Co-Working Space Boasts Private Offices and a Fully-Stocked Resource Library

Fuigo, a design-focused company founded by the brothers who helm the textile company Fortuny, recently launched an upscale co-working space. The space, located on New York’s Park Avenue South, is the only co-working facility dedicated to interior designers, allowing Fuigo to cater to their specific needs. In fact, along with the opening of the space, Fuigo launched the new tech platform that the in-house designers can use to manage their businesses. Currently, 12 designers work out of the office, but that count is expected to rise to 150 by the end of 2018. And when it does, Fuigo will have more resources in place to help them succeed. “[The Fuigo resource library] is fully staffed by a ‘resource oracle,’” said co-founder Maury Riad. “It is a critical resource for designers who are constantly in need of product samples, brochures and literature so they can efficiently complete their projects. When complete, it will have product from over 1,500 vendors.”

Change of Scenery

“Shared breakout areas [are] for designers looking to change their environment during the workday,” Riad said. “We encourage movement and change of scenery as part of a healthier, less stagnant, less fatiguing style of work.”
