Wild & Wolf has designs on brighter future following move to revamped office
Award-winning gift designer and retailer Wild & Wolf has moved into prestigious, newly-completed offices in Bath city centre, having teamed up with city-based office design and build experts Interaction to create a workspace that will enhance its unique brand.
Bath-born Wild & Wolf has enjoyed global success over the past 12 years with its products now sold in more than 60 countries worldwide.
It works with global brands such as Ted Baker, Orla Kiely and Ridley’s Games to design products ranging from keyrings and mugs to gardening tools that are sold in boutique independent retailers such as Bloomsbury and large multiple retailers including John Lewis and Boots.
Last year Wild & Wolf was acquired by D C Thomson, publisher of The Beano and The Dandy, in a move that has accelerated its expansion.
Its move across Bath city centre from Walcot Street to three floors of the newly refurbished 1970s office block 20 Manvers Street, pictured above and below, will give it space for further growth.
CEO Paul Taylor said: “We are thrilled with the relocation to Manvers Street and look forward to working in this bright, flexible and inspirational environment.
“What Interaction has created for us is a tailor-made workspace that will enhance the incredibly creative minds of our team.”
Zoe Parr, one of the designers at Interaction who worked on the project, added: “After analysing the workplace in-depth, the team at Interaction were able to create a one-of-a-kind space that truly caters for Wild & Wolf’s needs.
“We injected personality with unique design quirks and bespoke joinery, and the result is a space that will truly help Wild & Wolf to stand out.”
Wild & Wolf’s new home – described by Bath property agents as the best office accommodation available in the city – is also one of only a handful of properties in the city centre with photovoltaic panels, demonstrating the developer’s ethical approach to construction and reduction of its impact of on the environment.
