The benefits and downsides of common work spaces have been in the agency world for decades. But no one can deny the factor of The Barbarian Group’s newly designed offices—and the amazing, undulating “superdesk” that snakes through it.
Benjamin Palmer and Sophie Kelly (Founder and CEO, respectively) introduce thir new space in the video below. Understandably, they talk mostly about the desk. A marvel of design—created with help from architect Clive Wilkinson—it features gorgeous lines, archways and cubbies, and is topped with a single unbroken undulating surface created by a continuous pour of resin.
The thing is other worldly, and, of course, the perfect metaphor for a place that wants to broadcast a collaborative spirit. TBG proudly calls it “a desk that we could all share, literally—4,400 square feet of unbroken awesomeness to keep people and ideas flowing.”
So check out the video below. And try not to feel too bad about your own workspace (although we do like the collaborative layout and the semi-solid steel dividers in our Charlotte marketing agency)
