How Fully and Knack Coworking joined visions to create a space for all to love
Feeling more like forgotten tenants than valued members of a community, Mariah Lincoln and Catherine Bye—owners of the successful marketing agency Knack Collective—fled a disappointing Seattle coworking space to create a better experience for themselves and other underrepresented professionals of the business world.
Their vision: Knack Coworking, an inspiring, all-inclusive coworking space focused on creating greater access to business opportunity and success for womxn, people of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
They wanted to create a beautiful space in which their employees and members could feel and do their best at work. Mariah and Catherine’s experience working on static, uncomfortable furniture had left them with sore backs and a complaining team.
They knew that a human-centered space that promotes wellness would help them attract and retain great members in the crowded Seattle coworking market.
“Everywhere you look, there’s a Fully piece that sparks a conversation—and speaks to the enriching and productive experience we want our members to feel.”
— Catherine Bye, Knack Collective Co-owner
Mariah and Catherine found a kindred spirit in Fully Founder David Kahl, who had also fled a traditional work environment in search of a better, more balanced way of working. That search eventually led him to create Fully, with a mission to help people feel better in their bodies and bring their full selves to work. Knack partnered with Fully to create a healthy, dynamic workplace that encourages movement and flow.
With a three week timeline and a start-up budget, Fully helped Knack realize their big vision just in time for their grand opening.
“I have freedom to move when my body needs to. I feel liberated.”
— Bethany Sharp, Knack Collective Art director
