Bill and Jorden for WSJ

Sky Factory Featured
in the Wall Street Journal

The Sky Factory was recently featured as the Wall Street Journal’s Workplace of the Day. Entitled Bringing Mother Nature Indoors, the online slideshow presents views of Sky Factory life, past and present, and interview quotes from founder Bill Witherspoon about all aspects of the workplace from the energy-efficient building to our unique corporate culture.

The company’s innovative Illusions of Nature products are showcased, as well as the fact that Sky Factory products are all designed and produced in-house, assuring a superbly integrated and effective blend of art and technology.

According to Sondra Ward, Sky Factory’s Public Relations Facilitator, “WSJ Editor Sarah Needleman found the company fascinating and is interested in writing additional articles about the company.” The Workplace of the Day feature can be found here.

AIA Convention

Visit The Sky Factory at
the AIA Convention
Booth #2630

The Sky Factory will make its annual pilgrimage to the national gathering of architectural professionals, the AIA 2011 National Convention and Design Exposition, being held in New Orleans this year at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from May 12-14. Sky Factory will be among 800 exhibitors displaying the latest concepts and technologies for the built environment at this major architectural event.

The AIA promises something a little different this year, an event organized around the theme of “Regional Design REVOLUTION: ecology matters”. The AIA is a leader in promoting sustainable practices and innovations for the built environment, and this year’s conference promises to be an interesting event.

Sky Factory looks forward to bringing our biophilic Illusions of Nature products to the national architectural community. Please plan to visit us at booth #2630 during the event. Learn more about the event here.

Sky Factory France continues to score with impressive Luminous SkyCeiling installations featuring a split array of several SkyCeilings mounted into deep-coffered enclosures. In the meeting room of the Regional Council of Bordeaux building, this arrangement creates a dramatic, biophilically beneficial, presence of realistic sky and daylight in the enclosed space where regional officials meet.
