Danish architects Rosan Bosch and Rune Fjord has designed the interior of LEGO PMD, the LEGO’s development department located in Billund, Denmark. For today we thought about gathering a collection of Office Interior that would serve as a good source of inspiration for anyone thinking about LEGO PMD. The office interior design is considered an embodiment of LEGO. It has been designed in such a way that the working environment complements the playful nature of Lego.
The designers of LEGO’s development department, LEGO PMD, has a physical working environment that corresponds to its playful content – a working environment where fun, play and creativity are paramount and where the physical design gives the adults a chance to be part of children’s play. With the values ’fun’, ’unity’, ’creativity & innovation’, ’imagination’ and ’sustainability’ as basis for the design, LEGO PMD has become a unique development department where the designers can become part of the children’s fantasy world. The best escape route from a meeting at the Denmark office of toy brand Lego is down a metal slide. LEGO doesn’t just create fun for others – at LEGO PMD working is fun!
In order to create a design that corresponds to the focus on play, innovation and creativity, imagination has been given free rein. Across the room, an existing walkway has been transformed into an oversized sitting environment, where a light-blue padding turns the walkway into a light and soft cloud. The cloud unfolds and expands into sofas, sitting space and a slide that connects the two floors in a fun and playful way. The eight glass-fronted meeting rooms, each painted a different colour, are located on a first-floor mezzanine that wraps around the building’s perimeter. The idea of scale is challenged with design elements such as huge grass wall graphics and a giant LEGO man and tables with built-in bonsai gardens, thus playing with perception and scale – who is big and who is small? Where does work stop and imagination start? Through the physical design, the children’s fantasy worlds become part of the everyday, creating the setting for the creation of new design for new games and play.
A Fun Zone with a yellow table bar creates room for relaxation and social interaction, where a number of building tables for children make it possible for LEGO’s youngest employees to test the newest models and products. The new LEGO PMD is the children’s universe where imagination reins free – for children and designer alike!
