Client: Burgiss Group
Architect: Demetri Sarantitis Architects
This project exemplifies the range of design and engineering support Milder Office can provide its clients. For the Burgiss Group, a developer of investment tools, we provided distinct workstation products including quads workstations, hoteling stations for transitional workers, reception area, library and private offices.
We routinely develop new solutions that respond to the way our clients work. For Burgiss Group we developed a long banks of shared workstations for their traders (image 2). The stations have staggered seats and low partitions to facilitate communication between the analysts while keeping their screens private.
The architects asked us to develop a glass partition system that would integrate some of the existing site finishes while maintaining the overall look of the Milder Furniture System. Cherry sills and frosted glass elements were matched in the final partition design.
Re-Imagining New York’s Central Library Store
Milder Office was asked to propose an overhaul of the outdated (dare we say stogy) retail store for the New York Public Library at 42nd Street. Sadly with the renovations at the library stalled, the project has been shelved. Still, we thought to share some of the renders with you.
Product shown: Custom glass cases (lockable), tables, pyramidal book display, carts, etc. Units can be easily moved to match the store’s changing product displays.
Closed + Open Back Storage

LITTLE Office (NC)
Architect: LITTLE Architecture
LITTLE is an architectural firm that came to Milder Office to overhaul their 10,000SF offices in Durham, NC, they had a good sense of what it is they wanted. Our furniture system allowed the client to tailor products to their specific needs while maintaining a cohesive aesthetic throughout.
Clients have specialized needs, LITTLE wanted oversized desktops that could support the way they worked and could accommodate architectural plans. Milder also furnished conference rooms, private offices, lounge, as well as a custom kitchen and storage options throughout. A clever mix of pre-finished plywood colors were specified throughout the space to great effect.
The AIA Orlando Chapter awarded a Merit Award to the LITTLE Durham office. The jury commended the project’s successful interiors reuse project for being “restraint with a minimalist approach and strong interior furniture elements”.

Brooklyn Industries Stores
Milder Office worked closely with Brooklyn Industries to create store fixtures that offered maximum flexibility for the company’s range of products. Adjustable shelves can be swapped for pegs, which can be swapped for hanging rails, offering store managers varied display for BKI’s clothing, bags and accessories. Shop displays are changed from month to month, season to season.
The system was installed in seven stores in NYC, as well as in Illinois and Oregon, using different plywood finishes including HP laminate.
