OXO, maker of award-winning tools and housewares, located its first North American headquarters in the historic Nabisco factory building on Manhattan’s far west side. In addition to open workstations and private offices, the space features a large communal lunchroom and commercial kitchen where OXO’s many products are tested. The firm’s “glove wall” animates the gathering space. Specht Harpman has completed no fewer than four offices for this company that promotes good design across its many divisions.
