Book your event in a space with a blank canvas and let your ideas inform the venue. That’s the idea behind the new IDEA Studio in downtown Chicago. Housed in the International Interior Design Association office, this venue has an intricate mosaic-tiled entryway, which gives way to walls of windows and a clean design that serves as a canvas for any kind of event. Amenities like state-of-the-art A/V and meals in the on-site catering kitchen can be included.
“Our guests love the openness and personality of the space,” says Anastasia Gedman, special events manager at IIDA. “Clients aren’t confined to a dull, windowless meeting room—instead, they are surrounded by floor-to-ceiling views of Michigan Avenue and custom-designed offices.”
The IIDA office offers 2,800 square feet of flexible space. Smaller options include an executive boardroom, multiple conference rooms, a reception space and intimate lounge vignettes.
