A Working Playground

Is this a coincidence or what? After reading yesterday news about Skype becoming part of the Microsoft empire, I came across another one of their fantastic and enviable work spaces. Located in an 1846 landmark building (originally a clothing factory-turned brewery), this one happens to be their Stockholm office. The lively and colorful design was steered by Mette Larsson-Wedborn from PS Arkitektur. They used round shapes, fun light fixtures and an array of brighly colored furnishings to reflect Skype's playful spirit. You might also remember their U.S. headquarters in Palo Alto, California, that I featured back in March. After seeing the ingenuity behind  Skype's working environment, I'm convinced there is no excuse for rows of cubicles and boring meeting rooms anymore... wouldn't you say?

Pssst! Don't forget to enter this week's Giveaway here to win a fab leather phone case.
