Swiss design firm Camenzind Evolution is no stranger to the quirks of a Google office project (see Google Tel Aviv, Google Stockholm, etc.) and continued its no-hold-barred approach at Google Dublin. A crazy mixed bag of meeting rooms range from treehouse nooks to grassy knolls, rope swings and an Irish pub (oh yes, they did) and in between there’s breakout areas galore. That’s where British furniture studio JDD come in. James and Joe from Joint Design Direction were commissioned to create meeting pods and sofas, including the winged chairs in the jungle room (top), enclosed pieces for both individual and groups in the open plan workspace, and high-backed sofas of every colour to fit with the different themed corridors. Take a tour through the workspace in our image gallery above.
