Project: True Grit Consulting

Innovation & Collaboration

In our very first meeting with Carolyn and Eric Zakrewski, we knew were meant to work together. Open-Mind Interiors was in its infancy when we presented the “Workplace One” concept developed by Teknion to True Grit. They were in the early planning stages for their new building with FORM Architecture when they suggested that we share our ideas for open, collaborative workplace planning for this project. Planning for future growth, changing technology, and attracting talent were all major priorities for our mutual planning strategies.

Maintaining a clean, modern aesthetic that would maximize the natural light and views were also critical as the architect had designed the building with this in mind. The result is a unique, state of the art facility that is a testament to the willingness of this client to take some risks and create one of the most inviting workplaces in this market.


"We were fortunate to engage Open-Mind Interiors early in the planning process for our new 11,000 square foot engineering office development. They not only helped us analyze our needs, but guided us through a revolutionary work space planning process that led to the creation of a truly remarkable, collaborative and healthy work environment for our staff. From their expertise in planning and design to product delivery and installation, the entire experience was exceptional. Not only would we recommend the team at Open-Mind without hesitation...we look forward to working with them again on our next project".
