Yves Béhar Masterminds Coworking With San Francisco’s Canopy

Coworking has seen the light. Sunlight, in fact. “The biggest challenge was to keep light flowing through without compromising focused work and privacy,” Fuseproject CEO and founder Yves Béhar says. He’s talking about San Francisco’s Canopy, which he co-founded with a real-estate developer and an entrepreneur. His solution? Glass-box private offices, peppered throughout the 2,800 square feet, plus skylights. For open workstations, he chose Fuseproject’s own Public Office Landscape for Herman Miller, also the manufacturer of nearby seating by Don Chadwick. Local hero Heath Ceramics made the tile installed in an op-art geometric pattern on kitchen walls. Béhar calls the overall effect “work Nirvana.” Just say om.
