Work spaces: the Google office in Zurich

The news today on the Web is that Google employees are the most productive in the world. Apparently each Google employee produced in 2008 almost $ 210,000 in benefits for the company; no doubt, as mentioned, a good argument to request a raise. This news joins the one we already knew confirming that Google was chosen as the best company to work for in 2008.

To what extent will the decor his Offices to that productivity and well-being ?. Surely to a great extent. We have only to see how is the European Google Development Center located in Zurich, the creative center where most of its new projects are born.

At the reception, in the image above, they have installed a pinball and a billiard table so that visitors can have fun waiting. Once attended, they will go to the employees' meeting space, with an egg, a cable car, or an igloo to concentrate on the conversation.

Probably after the meeting it will be a good time to have a drink together in the cafeteria, to which you can move down on a slide.

Aware that for favor the inspiration and the creativity it is essential to have a favorable climate and an adequate environment have not spared facilities to relax: hammocks, aquariums, or massage rooms.

Of course there are also "traditional style" work tables, they are white, with their chest of drawers and computer, yes, all with two screens.

To deepen the design of the facilities, in terms of distribution, spaces and colors, I advise you to watch the video below. It's a bit long, nine minutes, but it's worth it. An excellent example of how you can communicate and confirm the strategy of a company through decoration.
