Interbau and the “American dream”. Mediacom is the 8th media agency in the U.S. providing cable TV services and was founded by Rocco Commisso, an Italian entrepreneur and a naturalized American citizen who is the actual embodiment of the American dream.
Mediacom’s motto is “people first, better results”: the headquarters of the company were built following this philosophy in Monroe, to the north of New York, in a green, not urbanized environment that can be easily reached by the employees.
Mediacom chose an Interbau made-in-Italy design stairway for its futuristic premises in collaboration with the American reseller Michael Williams of “da Vinci by design”: the stairway develops around a central stainless-steel 12m pillar that goes from the ground floor up to the ceiling. Interbau had to tailor the column, because of a size that was hard to find on the market.
During the setup, stainless steel side boards, embossed stone steps, glass banisters and a stainless-steel tubular handrail were linked to the pillar.
The work is one of the most successful examples of Made in Italy branding: this highly personalized stairway met perfectly the client’s most specific requirements.
