Adobe Systems is revolutionizing how the world engages with ideas and information. They chose Mission Bell's team, led by Alex Raanes, to ensure that the millwork in their new Adobe Auditorium reflects the importance given to communication at Adobe. This is a great example of what Mission Bell does best. By teaming early, Mission Bell was able to source beautiful logs, recommend design details, and execute within a strict schedule to provide maximum value.

Adobe helps people and businesses communicate better through its world-leading digital imaging, design, and document technology platforms for consumers, creative professionals and enterprises. Worldwide headquarters for Adobe Systems is in San Jose, CA where Mission Bell has completed two projects.

Mission Bell got involved early with Devcon and Arc-Tec to engineer a set of four motorized doors, ten feet tall that cover a 30 foot wide presentation screen. Mission Bell also supplied the pre-finished Makore Veneer that was sliced, stitched and pressed in-house to make book matched and sequence matched wall paneling. Quartered Makore veneer was also used to build a large and a small podium for the auditorium, and a one-of-kind demonstration table.
