Luella Rivera, a former New York City public school student, may not have ever heard of New York-based startup, Quirky.
But the employees of Quirky have definitely heard of her.
As part of its office design, the company repurposed an old school locker with her name on it and then used it to build one of its conference room tables. The name of the conference room then became "Luella Rivera."
It's one of the many unique and different aspects of the warehouse-style office that belongs to Quirky.
It's an idea that generated enough excitement that over the past few years, it's raised funding from the likes of GE and Andreessen Horowitz.
