SOM

Condé Nast Cafeteria

Employee cafeterias rarely enter the realm of high design. For Condé Nast, however, SOM created a soothing, spa-like dining environment for employees working within the global publishing giant’s Manhattan headquarters.

A colored light scheme stretches over luminous walls and the ceiling, transforming an otherwise prosaic space into a unique café on par with New York City’s most distinctive restaurants. SOM programmed hues of blue, pink, and green to wash gently over diners. The cafeteria features a main dining area and private rooms, a servery, state-of-the-art service kitchen, dishwashing area, and support spaces.
