The office design is based on the spirit of Skype, how it is a useful and playful tool that connects the world.

The in-between shapes of interconnected nodes has given us romboid and triangular shapes that is visible in the flooring and in the design of some of the hard furniture.

The playful happy theme in colours and soft furniture comes from the Skype graphics and the Skype cloud logo is reinterpreted as cloud-shaped lighting throughout the office space.

The Stockholm office predominately works with audio- and video development and this is manifested in the special made wallpapers with cables, earphones and other devices linked to audio-video technique.

    The colors are exquisite, tho' the ambiance is fey. It would be interesting to see the people who work here and how they dress.

    I love these spaces ala facebook and google office designs. I wish more offices would adopt this type of design theory, it makes for such a creative and inspirational space which always carries over into employees work ethic. If my office looked like this I would be inspired on a moment by moment basis; architects adore these spaces! Really cool, thanks for sharing.
