Brief Company Introduction

Keys Energy Services (KEYS) was in the midst of a once in a generation renovation to its main administration building, referred to as the Service Building, in 2014 and sought an interior design consultant to address its interior spaces. KEYS was seeking a partner that could address a myriad of section requests while also taking into consideration employee wellness, office efficiencies, and a desire to have timeless finishes that would stand the test of time. One Eleven Design was selected as KEYS interior design consultant and became an invaluable partner during the renovation and redesign of KEYS’ Service Building. The completed project exceed all expectations and stands as a testament to a successful collaboration.

Project Details

The fact that KEYS is located in Key West, FL did not impact our design process.  In fact, our team traveled south for key meetings and the customer traveled north to visit Herman Miller facilities to aid in their product selection.

Our teams worked with designer Patricia Baldus, Leaf, and architectural firm Bert Bender and Associates to stay true to the mid-century building design.  Product selections included:

  • Herman Miller’s Ethospace frame and tile system, Renew height adjustable tables, Meridian filing and storage, Exclave and Everywhere conference tables, Embody, Mirra 2, Setu, Caper, Eames Molded, Nelson bench, and Swoop seating, casework, and Thrive work tools.
  • StudioCraft provided custom fronts for the service counter and board room desk to create a custom look with modular structure for long term function.

Pain points/Weaknesses/Issues

KEYS had a strict budget to work within, so our challenge was to select long term performing products that would provide the best value within the budget constraints.  All goals were achieved while still providing a well-appointed standard work station to be used throughout the facility for all staff members.

Project Completion

The installation completed on time for a move back into the renovated building in March of 2016.  Since then, our team has worked with the KEYS team to refurnish their Stock Island facility with the same standards for organization continuity.

"The completed project exceeded all expectations and stands as a testament to a successful collaboration."


With a high level of attention to detail, KEYS worked diligently to select products that were value conscious, appropriate for the building style, and solidly built to withstand hurricane force use as tested during Hurricane Irma in 2017.  One Eleven Design is proud to have partnered with Keys Energy Services to introduce Herman Miller products to their organization.
