4 Office Designs Perfect For A Creative Workforce

Cramming people into portacabins might be cheap, but it’s certainly not inspirational. Science has shown that bland environments foster bland thinking, something which can have seriously deleterious effects on your business. You want your employees, coworkers and yourself to be motivated and productive at all times.

The good news is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. There are dozens of innovative companies out there, experimenting with stylish, exciting office designs to stir the senses. Here’s a selection of what they’re up to. 

TBWA Used Open Door Design 

TBWA is as an ad agency. As a result, it needs its employees to be creative, coming up with new ideas for ads every day to impress its clients. The company’s old offices were completely uninspiring and generic, so it decided to do something different. Instead of finding a regular indoor office, it decided to build an outdoor-style office cabin, painted in bright yellow, inside a larger warehouse building. The effect is quite remarkable and makes the office resemble more a TV set village than a regular office. 

The open plan design provides lots of floor space. Employees can roll out of their office chairs right onto a basketball court and enjoy some sport over lunch before returning to their “cubicles.” 

Inventionland Created An Office Out Of Its Own Sets 

Inventionland is a product design lab for a major invention promotion company in the US. But that’s not what makes the company interesting. What makes it interesting is the design of its offices. The company has decided to make its offices out of sets from films and television programs. Workers are spread across pirate ships, castles, and caves and surrounded by robots. To say that it is eclectic would be an understatement. 

The entire office is also outfitted with a state of the art sound system and workshops around the edges for creating the latest products that sell

Adobe Use Their Own Artwork In Their Campus

Adobe is one of the most famous companies in the world, thanks to products like Photoshop. As you might expect from a company with origins in Silicon Valley, it’s also very proud of its modern, productive workspaces. 

Adobe hired a commercial contractor to give its massive campus a complete makeover. There are murals all over the walls, and an indoor basketball court for employees to enjoy during their breaks. There’s also a gym, a games room that is nicknamed “the bunker,” and additional artwork produced using Adobe’s products. 

Google In Japan Uses Loud Colors

If you’re the sort of person who easily gets migraines, then Google’s Japan offices might not be for you. They’re bright, bold and a little ostentatious. Google has long had a reputation for innovative office design. But its offices in Japan take that to the next level. Every team in the office has its own set of bold team colors to set the mood each morning. It might not be to your taste, but it’s certainly something a little different from the usual gray, brown and navy blue. 

Final Thoughts
