Perch Gets You Excited to Go to Work

I remember the nicest office space I’ve ever worked in.

It was located in Chelsea in a large industrial building and designed by the starchitect Richard Meier, who conceived of an open floor plan — in order to make the environment conducive to collaboration — in his signature stark white, with clean lines. I looked forward to going to work everyday because of the well-designed office space. It wasn’t drab, I wasn’t confined, and it looked nice. I realized how much design affects your productivity. Everything matters, from the layout of the office to the actual supplies you use.

Perch, which was founded by Google alumna Lucy Lyle realized that. She saw how working long days in drab, plastic-filled workspaces illuminated by a bright fluorescent light made out to be obstacles to clear and creative thinking. She wondered, why can’t workspaces be more design driven, which would result in more productivity? Lyle found acked by some of the best e-commerce founders and investors around – including the founders of Casper, Trunk Club, Behance, Bustle, Birchbox, and Venmo.
