Skype found its next Stockholm home in a recently restored historical building, Münchenbryggeriet, which is also a well known landmark of Stockholm’s skyline. In 1846 the building was built as a clothing factory, and in 1857 it became Sweden’s largest brewery until 1971.
Now as a Skype’s offices the München Brewery houses 100 employees. PS Arkitektur firm, the designer of this fun office, was inspired by Skype brand’s playful spirit and its mission to connect the world.
The designers used round shapes throughout the interior design. Bright furniture in almost completely white spaces mixed together with creative lighting fixtures. The rounded shapes echo the Skype’s rounded font and cloud logo in opposition with geometric floor patterns.
The custom-made wallpaper is bringing some nature to the world of the staff.
Here are some furniture sources for this playful interior design. Most of it came from around Europe. The soft, round furnishings – Blå station; the large, soft green seating – Offecct, the poufs and sofas – Johanson design; the white chairs and barstools – Crassevig, the conference seating – Arper and the workstations – Martela. Customized furniture was designed by PS Architectur and built by Olle Lindelöf AB/Linjon AB. The lighting is – Stockholm lighting, Foscarini/Diesel, Zero and Fagerhult.
