7 insanely cool office spaces from around the world

How are you even supposed to work in these? Too amazing.

YOU CAN’T JUST have a normal old office any more, you know. You have to go bigger.

Regular old cubicles are not for these companies, which forgo the water coolers for slides, tree houses and meeting rooms straight out of your childhood imagination.

We’d be surprised if the employees even bothered going home, to be honest.

Missing Link, Johannesburg

The presentation and conference organising company doesn’t have an office, it has a playground.

The office even has its own free tattoo parlour, Missing Ink. See what they did there?

Mind Candy, London

This place is responsible for the game Moshi Monsters (ask your kids) – it has a tree house theme, with plenty of the little critters popping up around the place.

Air BnB, Dublin

The newly set-up Dublin office has an “Irish pub” theme, with old telephone boxes and a “bar”. SO swanky.



Selgas Cano Architecture, Madrid

Since this is an architecture firm, we’d expect something fancy – but this fairytale forest office is just beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.

Google, Zurich

OK, so Google have cool offices all over the globe but we’re singling out Zurich for special treatment. Look at these meeting rooms.

Pixar, California

If the headquarters of a company that is responsible for so many wonderful children’s films didn’t look the part, we’d be disappointed. Good thing it definitely does.

Here’s a closer look at one of the little houses, called “Andy’s Room”:

Inventionland Design Factory, Pittsburgh

Inventionland is, as you might have guessed, an invention factory in the US of A.

It contains some of the most ridiculous offices you’ll ever see, such as this pirate ship office:

And this race track office:

This is too much. This would just be distracting.

Yes. We’ll keep telling ourselves that.
