Good design creates inviting atmospheres that have a positive impact on our moods and experiences. This is why offices with a stimulating décor are so enticing. Offices with a honed aesthetic interior make our daily work commutes worth it. Here are 8 Wescover-worthy offices that have their employees raving. We are loving these inviting and stimulating office spaces:
Figma – San Francisco
Figma is a 5,000-square-foot headquarters at San Francisco, California. The first professional-grade online tool created specifically for interface design, Figma is a hub for programmers and designers alike. Geremia Design curated a compelling collection of contemporary art. Custom-designed planters provide considerable presence among the double height rafters in the light-filled common space and kitchen. Layered in tandem, prominent commissioned murals, which were drafted by noteworthy designers using the Figma cloud-based illustration tool, shape and activate the space. Light woods, grey and tan fabrics, and white accessories subtly complement Geremia-designed furniture.
