A peek inside Skype’s hip Californian headquarters

Between the multiple world clock displays, funky astroturf style rugs, clever rock shaped bean-bag chairs, and clean glass walls, the Palo Alto Skype office screams creatively modern yet practically comfortable design. This is the office that encourages you to get distracted with the right things. The 16 foot ceilinged rooms are scattered with unusual objects that make you feel like a kid while simultaneously pushing you to come up with solid work.

Everything is designed with the special audio and acoustic needs of an office centered on the use of internet video chat. The building houses over 240 employees seamlessly thanks to the innovative architecture design of Blitz. I think I could make myself right at home on one of those cushioned rock stools.
