Apart from engaging the local artist community to design tasteful murals and illustrations, the office will also host the company’s extensive global art collection of 5,000 works of art in India

Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, commonly known as BNY Mellon, an American investment banking services holding company headquartered in New York City, recently opened its new state-of-the-art office in Chennai. Apart from engaging the local artist community to design tasteful murals and illustrations, the office will also host the company’s extensive global art collection of 5,000 works of art in India, for the first time ever, providing a glimpse into BNY Mellon’s 230-year-old legacy.

Gates of India - A mural influenced by local architecture that embodies BNY Mellon-s culture and values

The company has engaged local artists to create art including wall murals reflecting a range of Indian perspectives to represent corporate values through their unique visual narrative. The artwork depicts the flora and fauna native to Tamil Nadu, the Gates of India theme is inspired by ancient, architectural gates of India. As many as 25 young Indian artists have created art on ‘Together’ as the theme, using hand-painted plates as their canvas to convey shared experiences to connect, providing shared moments of reflection. There’s also an employee photography wall.

Enhancing the employee experience has been a key factor when deciding the architecture and design elements

BNY Mellon has been committed to enhancing the employee experience, which has been a key factor when deciding the architecture and design elements. For example, quiet rooms, collaborative workspaces, innovation garages, ergonomic furniture, and height-adjustable workstations catering to individual personas and styles.
