One of the prizes we won from the Lean Startup Competition is six months of office space. We are excited to be working at the digital startup center 1871, located on the 12th Floor of the Merchandise Mart. As described on their website:
1871 is a co-working center for digital startups. Located in the famed Merchandise Mart, the 50,000-square-foot facility provides Chicago startups with affordable workspace and access to mentors, programming, educational resources, potential investors and a community of like-minded entrepreneurs.
1871 is a fantastic resource and we encourage any digital start-ups to check them out!
Not only is 1871 a great community for new companies, the office space is amazing! Below are a few pictures of some of our favorite furniture pieces in the office. The space was designed by Gensler, an architecture, planning, design, and consulting firm.
Wrap around sectional. Who needs 90 degree angles?
There are two of these giant tables, made out of old bowling lanes!
