Showrooms, with their dazzling products and inviting setups, are designed to make visitors want to bring every item into the comfort of their own homes. So when GE Consumer & Industrial looked to create a unique atmosphere in its new Monogram Design Center in New York City, it needed digital signage displays that would complement the showroom design, as well as enhance cooking demonstrations, informational seminars and special events. Due to the non-traditional workspace, designers would need to think through the eyes of a New Yorker to create an inviting and eye-catching showroom.
GE Consumer & Industrial is a worldwide industry leader in major appliance, lighting and integrated industrial equipment, systems and services. It provides solutions for commercial, industrial and residential use, incorporating innovative technologies and ecomagination, a GE initiative to aggressively bring to market new technologies that help customers meet pressing environmental challenges.
To help guide the technical aspect of its new Monogram Design Center, GE worked with Rethink Innovations, an audio/video, network and IT data infrastructure design company that provides cost-effective professional content for commercial facilities. Centrally located between New York and Philadelphia, Rethink Innovations assisted GE in creating a sophisticated New York City-themed environment that showcases Monogram appliances.
