Some offices can be boring and stifling, but definitely not these – we made a list of the coolest and most well-designed office spaces in the world.

There are many different ways to make an office cater to its workers. Some of these offices feature athletic equipment that helps workers reduce stress or get their blood flowing (which is always important if you sit behind a desk all day). Others feature lounges where workers can relax and feel at home. At some, the offices are designed to encourage workers to think more creatively or playfully.

Some of the ideas used in these offices overlap with the list of amazing home design ideas we’ve written about, while others are specific to a work environment. This makes sense, however, since offices can sometimes seem like a second home!
