Designed to foster co-creation and spark creativity, IFF’s space within Bell Works not only provides employees with collaborative areas and an office-wide open floor plan, but also draws inspiration from IFF’s newly launched purpose and brand identity.
IFF has a proud history of innovative firsts, and its opening in Holmdel connects the Company’s legacy with that of Bell Works, which is the home of so many breakthrough developments. The IFF Innovation Center today houses the Company’s foremost and cutting-edge fragrance technologies driving forward the future of fragrance for home care and fabric care, including digital olfaction technology, immersive virtual reality scent experiences, the latest generation of encapsulation technology, and industry-first scent printing.
