Red Bull, US

Red Bull’s lends itself to an almost space-age theme, with its minimalist interior and extraordinary features. Office workers are able to ditch the more traditional use of the staircase to get to their meetings, and can instead make an entrance – down a slide.

If meetings become dull, employees can take time out and have a quick game of ping-pong across the table, or hang out for a while in the open and spacious social area.

Pixar, US

In keeping with its quirky and enchanting animated films, Pixar’s , California, represents the same imagination that has created so many well-loved films. Office workers may choose whether they wish to work in a tiki hut, a lego castle, or a pod, or any number of strange but inspiring secret locations within the building.
