Ohio Non-Profit Organization Leverages High-Quality, Efficient Furniture Solution for New Space
The Cincinnati Ballet was founded in 1963 and has catapulted itself into being the primary professional ballet company of the region. With a mission to enrich, expand, and excel in the art of dance through performance, a high-caliber academy, and impactful education and outreach in local to global communities, Cincinnati Ballet reaches beyond the stage in programs that allow every person in the region to be part of the continued evolution of dance.
In recent years, the organization began to outgrow its previous space. For their new home, the Cincinnati Ballet needed more room to accommodate additional employees needed to support the rapid enrollment and audience growth of the Ballet. With an increased footprint, the new center aimed to expand the ballet’s education and community engagement programs. The organization required furniture solutions to accommodate office suites, a lounge for parents and guests, cafe environments, and dancers’ wellness. The ballet company requested space for both quiet, individual tasks as well as active or collaborative activities. Formal workstations and collaborative huddle stations were required for the office suites while the lounge areas and cafe called for flexible seating arrangements including soft seating, benches, and tables.
AIS and their dealer, RCF Group, were chosen for the project because of service, quick lead times and competitive pricing through the OMNIA Partners, Public Sector contract.
Divi workstations with glass stacks were proposed in the open offices to give users privacy without sacrificing natural light. Mobile storage peds with cushions were used across the workspace for easy filing and quick collaboration. Day-to-Day tables offered a casual, collaborative space to the open office. Calibrate was used in the private offices and executive suite providing users with a modern aesthetic and storage options. LB Lounge, Day-to-Day Tables, Laptop Tables, and Pierce Stools were chosen for the lounge areas to provide a pop of color and playfulness that created a fun yet professional area flexible for multiple uses. In the conference room, Day-to-Day powered training tables paired with Paxton seating supported the needs of individual users while collaborating.
"We are thrilled with the successful completion of the new Cincinnati Ballet Margaret and Michael Valentine Center for Dance," said Scott Altman, President and CEO of the Cincinnati Ballet. "We extend our sincere gratitude to RCF Group for connecting with OMNIA Partners, Public Sector, to harness their group purchasing power that helped maximize every donor dollar in the furnishing of this remarkable space."
