Tangram, a curator of highly creative commercial interior environments and workspaces, has received a 2021 Calibre Design Award in the category for design in Education.

The Calibre Design Awards showcases selected, outstanding commercial designs in Southern California. This award celebrates the outstanding work of project teams who have exceeded collaboration and designs that excel in a variety of categories.

Tangram Interiors furnished each floor of the four-story, 60,000 square foot building at the University of California, Los Angeles Anderson School of Management, graduate business school. Located in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, the newly dubbed Marion Anderson Hall received clean, neutral color palette designs that were both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Design was dedicated to classrooms, workspaces and event spaces while working intimately with architecture firm, Gensler.

As the school is heavily trafficked, furniture placement and thoughtful design played a key role in complementing the large, open, airy building. Tangram achieved this by implementing a combination of Steelcase, Coalesse and Viccarbe products.

“We were honored to work with the highly respected Gensler team on this project from the initial phases of budgeting over 5 years ago, to the final punch walk,” said Amber Jones, Vice President of Sales, Tangram Interiors. “Partnering with Gensler on the beautiful space they imagined was an honor. We were proud to be a part of this redesigned building project and helping it come to fruition was harmonious.”

Other highly respected partners on this project along with Tangram Interiors were PCL Construction, Steelcase and Waveguide.

Tangram provides solutions that foster workplace satisfaction, collaboration and productivity while enhancing the client’s brand and culture. In addition to its core contract furniture offering, the company operates multiple additional business units for a comprehensive approach to commercial interiors. This range of services allows for top-to-bottom involvement that integrates each aspect of planning, design and installation.
