Penton Media publishes trade journals focusing on the manufacturing, construction and hospitality industries. They wanted an environment that conveyed the vitality of a dot com enterprise without compromising qualities necessary for concentration while writing and editing, and a shift from an environment of closed offices to one more conducive to teaming and interdisciplinary interaction. A palette of stainless steel, encaustic plaster, blonde millwork, dolomitic limestone, slate and varied clear and translucent glasses establishes an image that is forward looking but balanced by a sense of familiarity.
