This corporate headquarters captures a industrial design unique to the Oakley brand image. Architecture and interior finishing complement the showcase of Oakley products.
Open to the public, Oakley Headquarters allows all to gaze upon a museum grade collection of one of the worlds largest sporting goods manufacturer. Originating back in 1975, Oakley started by selling motorcycle grips featuring ‘unobtanium’, a material that actually increases grip with sweat, which are now on display in the company museum. Other products in the collection include the companies ever growing catalogue of shoes, clothing, bags, goggles and of course sunglasses. Additional retail, research, development, and manufacturing facilities along with office space and a 400-seat amphitheater complete the multi-purpose campus. Architectural lighting is well integrated within the space to provide functional illumination while blending within the unparalleled industrial statement.
