The Coolest / Try hard office spaces in the World?

Basket House (USA) Basket case or brilliant idea?

The Coolest / Try hard office spaces in the World? Someones Ying is another person’s Yang. What works for one person, might not for another and this can be said for the following collection of office spaces and interiors.

One could argue that by trying to be cool, they are nothing of the sort – but all of us can agree that there is an element of aesthetic quality that makes them stand out.

We had the pleasure of going to the Facebook European head office a few months ago and apart from the odd thrown in Flower pot & Plant, the office could have been an open plan call centre with a minimalistic facade (no offence). Perhaps the crisp and sterile offfice space or hub of the last few years, will be replaced by the colourfulness of disorder? In comparison, open white spaces remind me of hospitals, and I can’t imagine being too creative lying on a waiting room bed with the smell of disinfectant in the air.

Check the folllowing pics below and make your own judgement on the ones that you think are cool, and the ones you think might just be a little too try hard…
