Science gets the star treatment at this new Customer Solutions Center for Dade Behring, a maker of medical diagnostic devices. The firm's name is abstracted into bold graphic elements that could be a chemical formula; a central wall that contains hundreds of glowing acrylic boxes suggests the many small steps that make up a single large scientific advance, and the floorplan, with angled shafts penetrating several layers before reaching a central display area, hints at the layers of discovery a scientist must go through on the way to a breakthrough.
