The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a not-for-profit organization and is located in the Butler Square building in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. The new offices cover 3,500 sq. ft of space and occupies 13 employees. The concept for the interior design is focused on the words “contract and release”, which is based on the action of breathing.
Soft, playful pops of color sprinkled throughout their space offer places to sit casually and work or take a break.
The importance of well-being can be seen in the sit-to-stand desks that allow for posture changes, comfortable ergonomic seating, dual monitor arms for greater screen visibility, and LED lighting to reduce eye strain.
The pattern and color of breathing can be seen here in the ceiling acoustic felt baffles, the bold colors and geometric patterns on the walls. Privacy, focus and productivity are achieved with both individual workstations and a variety of conference rooms.
Gathering spaces to connect and refresh were another important goal. Maari chairs are a good solution to provide soft, comfortable and cleanable seating.
There is something about café-style lounge areas that draw you in—bringing casual relaxation, offering opportunities for connectivity and spontaneous collaboration.

A variety of playful textures, colors and materiality make this storage area look clean and organized.
