YNAP has selected Grimshaw, the award-winning British architecture firm, to design a stylish forward-thinking work environment that reflects the Group’s unique position at the intersection of fashion and technology. The Tech Hub will feature an innovative interior design with up to a quarter of the surface dedicated to adaptive space. The flexible features match the evolving needs of the business with a focus on creative and collaborative ways of working, supporting seamless operations with the Bologna-based tech team and other parts of the global business.

Yoox Net-a-Porter Group’s Five Year plan is built on a foundation of mobile and has been developed to outpace the industry through innovation. The new Tech Hub will accommodate for the planned 20% increase in YNAP’s global technology team, made up of 1000 employees equally spread across the UK and Italy. The Hub will nurture the mobile-centric culture, allowing engineers to create best-in-class technology solutions, and accelerate the Group’s R&D and release of the next wave of developments including yet-to-be-released technological breakthroughs.
