Hortonworks is a computer software company that focuses on the development and support of Apache Hadoop. The software framework, Hadoop, enables businesses to quickly gain insight from massive amounts of structured and unstructured data.

On this project, Mission Bell worked closely with the architect, specifically on the design concept for the Reception Desk. To create a space that met both form and function, we utilized a green CAT5 cable wire that dropped from the ceiling, traveled through the edge of the Corian desk, and into the base board. To give the CAT5 cable wire flexibility, Mission Bell re-purposed springs that were placed in the ceiling and base boards.

This unusual design allows the receptionist visibility into the lobby area, while the color of the CAT5 cable wire matches the green theme of the office.
