The reception area of the Flagstone Foods headquarters.
Consider the walnut. Grown on trees in hot climates, picked by some to be enjoyed by others, its tough shell gives way to a softer, strikingly different interior. Betsy Vohs, founder and CEO of the multidisciplinary Studio BV translated these treenut tenets into her team’s design for the head office of Flagstone Foods in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which sources and produces trailmix for private label brands. “Warm, textural, clean, and soft in a way that’s creamy,” is how Vohs describes the material and color palette for the company’s headquarters, which features wood accents and earthy hues. A deep blue accents the walls and furnishings in various work zones while the industrial strength kitchens, designed with hospitality sensibilities, offer a modern touch. The space also enables clients to take part in the creation of mixes-a reflection of the Flagstone Food ethos that appreciation grows goodness.
