Business and Design Forum
Please join us for a conversation with Megan Tamte, Co-Founder/Co-CEO of Evereve and Betsy Vohs, Founder/CEO of Studio BV. We will explore their exciting journey of building their businesses from the ground up, the challenges they have overcome and the pursuit of stepping into the unknown to fulfill their passion.
We will also take a tour of Evereve’s new headquarters space – design and architecture by Studio BV.
The design is focused on putting people first while emphasizing the culture of the company in a warm, soulful space.
An industrial, warehouse-like environment will be achieved by opening up the ceiling and removing the interior walls. This light-filled shell will be infused with casual, feminine features throughout. Spaces will be designed to be both collaborative as well as focused.
Opportunities for both team work and heads down focus, will be provided throughout the space in fun, engaging lounge areas as well as cozy, private rooms and spaces. A large cafe and lounge will become the social hub where all teams can gather, work, and create. It will be designed a flexible space for large meetings and workshops.
The creative area will be a showcase – a place where stylists and buyers can explore and play with product in a contemporary workshop environment. The new layout creates a workflow that is intuitive and successful. The ultimate goal for the Evereve Home Office is to create an environment where people are excited to come to work everyday. A space where individual style is accepted and a communal culture is celebrated.
A place that feels like home.
