The employees at the Red Bull office in Mexico City give meeting an informal feel. Their meeting area has swings and bean bag chairs and is defined by a faux grass carpet. This is actually a very refreshing spot, connected to the rest of the work spaces and also great when used as a hang out area. This playful meeting space was designed by SPACE.
Some office meeting rooms can look cheerful without needing any unconventional features. Such is the case of the Resignation Media office by Chioco Design. The office is located in Austin, Texas and, after a complete building renovation, includes a bright and open meeting area centered around a long table surrounded by stylish armchairs of different colors.

The rounded base allows this whole piece to be used as a large swing. This unusual idea was applied here by Lundberg Design.
