A refined design with rugged masculine undertones greets you as you enter the new US Corporate Headquarters for FN America, LLC, a global leader in development and manufacture of firearms. DBI designed a sculptural wall installation of over 2,200 gun parts, painted matte black to allow the wall to be viewed as one unit instead of the 2,200 parts from which it was created. This distinct feature is paired with a chiseled stone entry wall displaying the FN America logo. Crisp, cream ceramic tile and custom-stained decking material, installed vertically as shiplap, serve as a dramatic backdrop. Rich Indigo blues paired with warm camel desert tones tie the space together while focusing on the brand. State-of-the-art reconfigurable conference rooms utilize the latest in audio-visual technology, allowing FN America to collaborate with its staff around the world.
