If you want your employees to have fun at work, you need to create a fun and positive environment for them in the office. Okay, so it might not be possible for all of us to have rock-climbing walls and ping-pong in our offices, but a little inspiration never hurt anybody.
So go ahead and stare at the back wall of your bland cubicle and dream about these beautiful office environments:
1. Coca-Cola – London, U.K.
Coca-Cola’s office will make you feel like you’re at home… you know, if your home is over 66,000 square feet and has a café and a rooftop terrace.
2. Google – Zurich
You can’t have a list of cool offices and not include Google. The Zurich office made our list because of its fire poles, fish tanks, thinking gondolas, and huge beanbag chairs.
3. Parliament – Portland, Oregon
This office is the ideal “man cave.” It is made up of recycled and reclaimed materials, like street signs and wood from a church, to give it a comfortable, yet refined look.
4. Nike – Beaverton, Oregon
The Nike office is full of creativity. The vibrant colors lining every wall make it impossible to not feel inspired the second you walk in.
5. Red Bull – London, U.K.
This office is clearly a funhouse for adults. Who wouldn’t want to get from floor to floor via slides? (Well I guess we wouldn’t have to if Red Bull did actually give us wings.)
6. Wieden+Kennedy – New York City
Complete with a library, recreation center and outdoor park, Wieden+Kennedy’s New York office is an urban dream. The bright, minimalist designs help to make working efficient and exciting.
7. Bahnhof – Stockholm
If you’re actually a super spy during your spare time, this office is for you. The former anti-atomic shelter looks exactly like any classic, cinematic underground lair and we love it.
