Skype’s Offices – Stockholm

Skype has been busy with their offices lately. Today’s is located in Stockholm, and a previous post showed off their latest space in Palo Alto.  This project was completed by PS Arkitektur.

As you can see the space is very bright and colorful, though not quite as busy as Google’s Stockholm office space.  Here is a some explanation of the design choices:

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.
