The New Work Project by The New Design Project

We’ve seen a lot of co-working spaces pop up in the last few years. While some are designed solely for getting work done and are equipped with the bare essentials (desks, chairs, wifi), others like The New Work Project in Brooklyn, New York are more design-led, with an interior design approach that its creative members would appreciate.

Designed by Brooklyn-based interior design studio, The New Design Project, The New Work Project is a members-only workspace for those in the creative industries including: advertising, PR, marketing, architecture and design, TV, film and media, fashion, and publishing. Husband and wife duo James Davison and Fanny Abbes wanted to create a place where its members can live, work and play. The result for The New Work Project is a black and white interior design (as in, black and white chairs, wallpaper, wall art, and books). This classic theme is accented by brass fixtures, marble counters, woven textures, and pops of foliage. The furniture is all custom designed by The New Design Project, as well as other local Brooklyn designers such as J.M. Szymanski and Eskayel.
