Bringing the world inspiration, one pin at a time.
From start-up to mature public company with offices around the globe, Insidesource has been Pinterest’s dedicated workplace partner. At the century-old former factory at 651 Brannan in SF, workstations and meeting spaces encourage circulation and cross-collaboration, and support quiet, heads-down focused work. The eclectic interior features a mix of client-tailored, custom solutions, flexible modular workspaces, and plywood finishes are thoughtfully featured throughout the space on architectural elements and custom furniture.
One of the building’s core elements is the dramatic staircase known as the Knitting Stair, inspired by an image of fingers and knitting needles crossing. It’s a physical manifestation of one of Pinterest’s core values –“knitting”– the fusing of disciplines and perspectives to create creative solutions.
