Ryan Bennett, General Manager at WeWork, India spoke on the unique design narrative, “All artwork at WeWork Bristol Chowk has been hand painted by WeWork’s Art & Graphics team. The art in the space has taken inspiration from the history of Delhi and is connected to the roots of the city and nearby areas. The artwork near the Hot Desk and Dedicated Desk areas are inspired by Lodhi Gardens – a historic park situated in central Delhi that spreads over 90 acres. The Maruti car artwork peeking into the ground floor from the first-floor corridors is inspired by Maruti Suzuki India Limited who had established a manufacturing plant in Gurgaon in the 1970s, which was one of the main reasons for the city’s economic growth back then. The inspiration for the artwork in the game zone comes from Doordarshan, India’s largest and oldest broadcasting organization which had its humble beginnings in Delhi”.
There has been a macro shift toward a new way of work – one focused on a movement towards meaning and WeWork is accelerating this movement. With the launch of WeWork Bristol Chowk, the company will provide space for 7,000+ members across India. With our growing community in India, WeWork enables companies to grow together in the local communities of each building, and in the global community of the Member Network. By fostering a symbiotic relationship amongst our members, no other platform has the global scale, localized community experiences, and support that WeWork has been able to create and offer.
