Out with the old........In with the New. HON's Recently Remodeled Headquarters

Reception Area

Originating in Iowa over 60 years ago, The HON Company is one of the largest providers of practical and professional office furniture. The organization recently renovated a historic downtown Muscatine (IA) building into their corporate headquarters, demonstrating their commitment to the community and sustainable design. Working with the inherent characteristics of the 100-year-old former window sash factory, the adaptive reuse interplays history and place within a progressive workplace environment.

Exposed brick and timber combined with clean lines express a modern theme symbolizing the company's culture. A mix of open workstations and private offices, collaborative gathering space and an extensive product showroom encompassing two floors, the headquarters encourages interaction and promotes a hub of activity. The bold, simplistic design reinforces the company's brand as a forward-thinking leader for their clients and staff.

Focused on heightening the customer experience and displaying product, the new offices parallel the casual hospitality that defines HON. The design solution demonstrates the effectiveness of good planning, architecture and use of the furniture manufacturer's product, and creates a fun and highly functional workplace. To exemplify the company's "smart now, smarter later" approach, workstations are organized in a universal concept, allowing adaptability to change with minimal disruption to productivity.
