Step Inside Airbnb's Nature-Filled Tokyo Office
As if we weren't already big enough fans of Airbnb, the company's gorgeous new Tokyo offices have just put us over the edge. A sophisticated blend of form and function, the new design accomplishes its goal of uniting "both local and global cultures," according to Designboom. Sitting at almost 2000 square feet, the office draws inspiration from various Airbnb listings around the world—specifically those in Prague, Tijuana, and Barcelona.
Per employee feedback, the theme of nature is heavily incorporated throughout the new design, with the end result serving as a breath of fresh air from the city's chaotic Shinjuku district outside. Staff members can dine in the light-filled café and reception area, follow wooden paths to the various meeting rooms, and remove their shoes and relax on the tatami mats peppered throughout the office.
Tour Airbnb's new Tokyo offices for yourself, and shop indoor plants to achieve the same soothing, natural vibe in your office.
