BenchSci is a company on a mission to increase the speed and quality of life-saving research using biomedical artificial intelligence. This innovative Tech company is headquartered in Toronto and began its new office design pre-pandemic.
The design brief outlines a plan for a minimalistic office inspired by Scandinavian design, including plenty of greenery and employee wellbeing at its core.
Custom and curated murals bring out BenchSci's true character. From science to local sports themes, everyone can find something to spice up their office life. The murals are a way of keeping the eye engaged without overwhelming the space.
Designed To Inspire
At every corner, there are elements to stimulate the mind and senses. The use of colour, texture, greenery, light and materials surprise and delights.
Every meeting room and collab space has all the tech specs needed to be productive in a virtual world: gear, power, acoustics, light.
Design Insight: Eureka!
"Science" was brought into the design in unexpected and subtle ways: plant pots and vases resembling beakers, measuring cylinders, Erlenmeyer flasks, and Petri dishes. Photo galleries of relevant scientists and murals with abstract interpretations of binary code appear throughout.
A place to gather. BenchSci functions as a team to bridge the gap of technology & humanity, to better the health of the world. The gathering space acts as an important component of the team's functionality.
Project Fun Facts
"We have an innovative new office space in Toronto for team members to use as much or as little as they like. We’ve named this space the “BenchSci Commons,” alluding to the “commons” of political economics—the cultural and natural resources we all share."
