It is a glorious time for end users and designers – the
accessibility to many different ancillary products, options and choices is
exciting and promises to create a unique and perfect space.
However, once you’ve loaded up that Pinterest page and started contacting vendors, you realize its not as simple as it seems. Lead-times vary, order process and terms vary, order errors can have you waiting months for some items while others arrive all on the same day, with no where to store them.
Planning and specifying spaces should be inspiring and easy.
Steelcase Marketplace is your answer to a smooth process for ancillary furniture. The Steelcase Marketplace tool gives you access to new and unique brands while making your job simpler, saving time and bringing together project teams – beautifully.

Waldner’s recently called on Spectrum Designs for support with our annual Cupcake Wars event, at the Steelcase Worklife Center in NYC. Ten teams of 4-5 designers/architects from throughout the Tri-state area compete by decorating cupcakes to a holiday theme. The team with the most creative and well executed cupcakes wins the title of Cupcake Wars Champions!

With all this sugar-filled fun (and potential for spills and splats), we called on Spectrum Designs to deliver 100+ custom aprons for everyone at the event. The entire process – from the initial call to placing the order, to opening the apron-filled boxes a couple weeks later – went as smoothly as icing on a… cupcake! We were able to keep the competitors (relatively) mess-free, and all the participants got to take home a custom souvenir apron, courtesy of Spectrum Designs!

CANSTRUCTION Long Island is an exciting design build competition where firms from the architectural, engineering and design communities create giant incredible structures that are self-supporting and made entirely out of canned food. Once the structures are built and judged they stay on Exhibit for 2 weeks. At the close of the event and prior to Thanksgiving all the food is donated and then distributed to local food banks.
We support The Interfaith Nutrition Network, Island Harvest Food Bank, Long Island Cares, Inc./The Harry Chapin Food Bank, and The NEST at Nassau Community College. Over the past eleven years, CANSTRUCTION has donated more than 440,000 cans of food!
