Bustle’s New York Headquarters by Corgan Was Designed for Speed and Change
At Bustle, a news source for and by women, they call the ever-quickening pace of online media moving at the speed of light. When Corgan was engaged for their New York headquarters, that mantra inspired the 34,000-square-foot office’s design. In the elevator vestibules, color-changing lights intensify walls of mirrors. The pantry features a wall covering by Paul Smith that is an abstraction of neon signs on a bustling London street. In open office areas, natural light casts colorful shadows created by vinyl film on glass doors. “The space reflects Bustle’s unique culture and energy,” Corgan senior designer Prutha Raithatha says. Because the company was expected to grow quickly, the space was designed for possible expansion. Corgan is currently at work on an additional floor.
