Art in the Workplace

In today’s hectic, information-overloaded age, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer bombardment of stimuli. Fortunately, there are different ways to cope—to slow down and to take a collective breath. Whether it’s relaxing at home with a favorite book, listening to your favorite album or visiting a museum, we all tend to find comfort in art and its various forms.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

― Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

The workplace can be especially stressful—but it shouldn’t have to be. At Squeaky, we put a lot of effort into creating a space for our team that not only welcomes reflection and innovation but also contributes positively to our company culture. We’re always on the lookout for new and interesting additions and very recently we added this awesome piece of ‘Ride-able Art’ you see below, custom-built by the Chappell brothers (Rob and Chris) at Chappell Customs.

Stout 33

At Chappell Customs, their goal isn’t to re-invent the wheel but rather, to create unique ride-able bikes with custom flair and extreme attention to detail. This particular bike is referred to as the Stout 33 and is a 1982 XS650 Heritage Special (with a few custom tweaks). It’s an incredible piece of machinery and we feel it complements our space quite nicely.

Items like this bike add a dash of flavor to our culture, creating a lasting impression for visitors and a fun, comfortable work environment for the Squeaky staff. But don’t take our word for it, check out some of our excited staff members test driving it below. That is, until Spring when the Stout will be setting off car alarms in NYC and North Jersey :)
