    Mediba offers a wide range of Internet services such as culture, games, and child care, other than providing “au portal site”. au is one of the three largest companies across mobile phone franchisee in Japan.

    Mobile phones are one of the social infrastructures. As a company that takes a part in such infrastructure, Mediba has established a design concept based on the theme of “diversity”. It is called “Communication Planet”.

    Imagine how the creatures survive on the earth. Many of them live in groups. For example, the animals are nestling on trees in Savanna. Fish are gathering on corals.

    The goal of their office design project is that the employees improve their relationship and communication skill sets. To achieve it, Mediba adapted those examples into their design concept, and created a similar situation, which is under a comfortable environment with others, in their office. By sprinkling nature-based features such as randomly arranged desks, greens, tree shades, caves and tunnels, it enhances rich communication within the office. Such communication is what gives employees a sense of trust and is a catalyst for improving the quality of day-to-day operations.

    Mediba also believes that “communication and respecting set of values and ideas” will further develop diverse culture. Their design concept “Communication Planet” has brought such ideal circumstances and culture, which should be reflected in today’s work environment, into their office.
