The new Mindvalley Headquarters has a user-centric workplace that was inspired by the jungle gym playscape and Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, creating a multilevelled space filled with polychromatic light. The designers put together these ideas based on the concept and functions of the office that seek to optimise materials, spatial layout and human performance.
The environmental settings of the workspace are based on an architectural exercise on pleochroism—an optical phenomenon where the colour of a substance shifts when observed at different angles—and its dynamics with user experience and productivity.
