Architecture firm ai3 designed the space, reminiscent of the piano, an homage to the office furniture brand's heritage.

Kimball, a custom office furnishings brand, is set to open its newest 7,500-square-foot showroom in West Midtown May 18.

Situated in the 2282 Defoor Hills development, at 2282 Defoor Hills Road NW, Kimball's new space has been designed by architecture firm ai3 to create a "tailored experience for designers and their clients," according to a press release Wednesday.

 In its design, ai3 embraced the company’s heritage as a former piano manufacturer, building a space inspired by the inner workings of a piano including features like the cable guardrail design wrapping the upper mezzanine, the graphic black and white wallcovering in the conference room, and the floating steel “belt” around the mezzanine.

“Our Atlanta showroom will be more than a place where we showcase product and the Kimball brand,” Wendy Murray, director of marketing for Kimball, said in the release.

“Through a thoughtful process of working with the design community and understanding the evolution of today’s workplace, we have designed a space that is focused on inspiring creativity and introducing new ways of working. The intent is to provide a creative workspace that will give designers a place to bring clients and experiment with ideas.”

The showroom will be open to industry trade by appointment between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
