Creative Work Environments

The Cool Hunter recently featured some extreme examples of creative work environments including inside peeks at such esteemed companies as Pixar and Google. Though some seem to be the extremes in cool spaces (to the point of questioning usability and functionality), working in a beige cubicle makes the idea of a brightly-colored, freeform spaces immensely appealing.

A great quote from the article:

The cookie-cutter open-plan office spaces are no longer an effective means of stimulating creativity. Physical dimensions such as light and surrounding noise undoubtedly affect the way people work with one another. Even subtle alterations in the color of a wall or the angle of a work station may result in highly sustainable creative thinking efforts.

Do you have a cool workspace? Send us some pictures, we'd love to see them!
