Conduit Interior’s Korbicom project featured by Wired Magazine as one of their “50 Spectacular Offices Where Everyone Would Like to Work”, the Italian arm of the leading publication focusing on technology and culture, selected one of Conduit Interior’s office design projects to feature alongside Silicone Valley giants such as Google; Amazon; AirBNB; Apple; Trip Advisor & Facebook. We’re honoured to have made this shortlist:

50 Spectacular Offices Where Everyone Would Like to Work

“We have selected 50 spectacular offices and locations in which to work can become a unique experience

Open spaces, buildings designed by large architectural firms and offices surrounded by greenery are now some of the characteristic features of many workplaces around the world. We have selected 50 spectacular offices and locations in which to work can become a unique experience.

We spend an average of 6 to 8 hours a day in the office, and often more. It is undoubtedly a place where we spend a substantial part of our days, and over time it has become clear that working in a cared for and stimulating environment not only improves productivity, but also helps to better face the tasks entrusted and control stress.

Especially inside the headquarters of large companies, where work rates are often very tight, relaxation areas and sharing spaces cannot be missing. In general, then, the tendency to improve the quality of workplaces passes from a better management of spaces and from small measures relating to furniture and architectural features such as, for example, lighting.

Thus, for many years now companies from all over the world have been creating functional and welcoming work spaces, where there is growing attention to design furnishings and more and more refined details.

The giants of Silicon Valley, for example, in many cases have commissioned the designs of their offices and representative offices to major architects and their studios, as in the case of Frank Gehry, who designed the new extension of the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, or by the architect Norman Foster, to whom Apple has entrusted the project for the Apple Park in Cupertino.

But it’s not just the American giants who learned the lesson. In the world, several companies and startups choose to take care of the design of their offices in detail, now conceived as a real physical extension of the philosophy behind the companies.

Beyond the spectacular nature of some of the workspaces shown in this ranking, a constant that returns and unites many of the offices represented here is the attention to decorations made mainly with natural materials such as wood and the constant presence of common spaces in to share their ideas and visions. In most cases, then, the presence of plants and green areas is not a simple piece of furniture but it positively affects employees, conveying a sense of calm and tranquillity.”
