In today’s business world the workplace environment has gained a strong importance in a company’s internal management strategy, but probably the most interested in assuring a different, diverse, and constantly changing workplace are the creative industries.
This year, digital creative agency agency The Barbarian Group has triggered a wave of debates with a video in which they present their new office in New York City. In their attempt to keep the Barbarian tribe happy and inspired every day the company turned to Clive Wilkinson, an architect who has established a reputation for its influential approach to designing for the office landscape. The result of their collaboration? A 4,400 square feet of undulating, unbroken work surface to keep people and ideas flowing.
The massive bureau, dubbed “Superdesk”, runs along a horizontal plane, occasionally sloping upwards to create archways. While the 1,100 feet long unbroken polymer desk surface keeps all 125 employees of the agency together, the archways ease the circulation but also create semi-private spaces suitable for meetings and small group work.
According to TBG, ‘’Superdesk’’ cost $300,000 and was fabricated in Los Angeles with the help of vintage automotive robots.
