In 2016, the design team at Commercial Furnishings was tasked with converting the former Religious Student Life Building into the new Mercer Innovation Center. Bold patterns and colors were introduced to signify this transformation and to herald a new era of Big Ideas at Mercer. Collaborative interactions are encouraged throughout the space with mobile furniture, technology integration, and ample marker board surfaces. Individual offices (complete with full height marker board walls) are available for rent, as well as “hot seats” in the open Collaboration Zone. For more information, visit
