The EY wavespace in Amsterdam provides EY with a unique and immersive experience for both clients and employees, inspiring and enabling them to explore innovative ideas that will help successfully navigate the Transformative Age. By attracting people to a space which is completely out of the ordinary and outfitted with the latest technology, it ultimately works as a catalyst for innovation.
All technology is on display, while seamlessly integrated into a dynamic and layered design. The free flowing global wavespace concept was tailored to Amsterdam with a high degree of flexibility, taking the concept and design innovations to a next level. It features a high tech presentation screen, seven meters wide, integrated into felt covered, rounded partitioning walls which can be swung round to host larger conferences or swung to enclose an intimate space for smaller collaborations. An array of high and low pivoting tables and seating elements can be configured to various settings. A rounded glass partition wall acts as an “ordinary” writing board while curtains add to the interactive and softer nature of the space. The wavespace can also be tuned to a “regular” workplace for professionals on the lookout for an inspirational place to work in the global activity based working concept of EY, EY@Work.
Early 2017 EY launched its global network of growth and innovation centers to help clients catch the next wave in radical breakthroughs in business transformation by tapping into innovative thinking across EY disciplines, experience and industry sectors. The wavespace in Amsterdam is the latest addition to the family and allows companies and organizations to gain hands-on experience with digital developments via showcases and workshops, enabling them to find out how new technologies, including data analytics, blockchain or robotics (RPA) could benefit them.
