teamlab designs pixiv office with 250m interactive work desk
tokyo based teamlab have designed a vibrantly colored, interactively oriented office space for pixiv, a japanese online community for artists, where users can exhibit their illustrations and get feedback via a rating system. the workplace centers the architectural arrangement around a 250m long desk that snakes throughout the entire space, zig-zaging around the room and meandering around corners and against walls. because the wooden table is completely connected, teamlab has molded its shape so that a bridge-like underpass allows workers to walk beneath it, directly through the desk. cut-out holes act as private areas that individuals can climb into and remotely work with a laptop, while a three-tiered bookshelf can be ascended and contributes a lofty place to settle above the rest of the facility.
