Tour of my work’s unique seating and meeting places
My work has some interesting break-out seating areas and meeting rooms. Here is a small selection of the more interesting ones, most have developed a nickname over the years.
This table is nicknamed the ‘Peanut table’. You can see how it derived its name. It use to be popular for informal meetings until lack of workspaces made the table a makeshift workstation.
This open-space table became known as the ‘teppanyaki table’. Apart from the lack of leg-room on the side, it is a nice little raised area to have a meeting or just chat. No that middle section is not where you heat up the meat.
This strange meeting room has attracted the name ‘The Fish Bowl’ room. Surrounded by a ring of glass, the unnerving design makes me think of an intense FBI interrogations room.
These tables occupy the kitchen area. I personally call them the ‘Last supper’ tables, as they resemble the elongated table featured in Leonardo da Vinci’s famous biblical painting. Yes that sushi and baguette rolls were amazing.
These relaxing coffee lounges are another great place to catch-up for a morning meeting or just have a rest.
