Cubes: Check Out IPG’s CMO Desk of the Future

Now that we’ve covered a couple of WPP units in Grey and JWT, let’s move on to another holding company, shall we? In this episode of “Cubes,” we tour the worldwide headquarters of IPG Mediabrands, the media holding company responsible for $34 billion in global revenue from advertising agencies such as Universal McCann. IPG’s work includes the Geico Gecko and Volkswagen’s pint-sized Darth Vader.

The IPG headquarters is home to a cutting-edge media lab full of Minority Report-esque marketing technology, and the office includes a high-tech workspace dubbed “the desk of the future” and a skyway stretching over 32nd Street that was once used by the Gimbels department story, the building’s previous tenant.
