Office Space Combines Quirky and Casual
Pinkeye Crossover Design Studios in Antwerp have given their offices a makeover, with eclectic meetings rooms, wood-panelled walls, and what could easily double as the hippest bar in your neighbourhood (it’s their lunch room.)
The main feature is a wall of diagonal wood panels that divides the 600-sq-m space. Arched cut-outs reveal conference and meeting rooms ranging from the cosy to the bold, outfitted alternately in vintage furniture, white quilted wainscoting, colourful rugs and shimmering gold wallpaper.
A lengthy communal work table running down the middle of the office serves as the main workspace, lit by hoop-shaped lighting. And the lunch room offers more appeal – a gold-topped bar and mirrored shelves for displaying after-work drinks. For the working hours, a long table is set against a black and green tiled kitchenette and hanging basket lights.
From the hallway, something else might catch your eye – a metal sign reading: ‘You Work Harder’ – if you’re not admiring the scenery, that is.
