The zigzag shaped parts slide in and out to accommodate books in the resulting spaces. Also the books can be arranged according to their sizes. The narrow spaces are excellent for magazines.

We all dream of cool offices, but most of us only get as far as customising our desk area with a few photos and a gadget or two. But check out video social networking company Web.tv’s awesome offices. Located in Turkey, the sprawling building hosts over 200 employees and offers a range of stations for any kind of mood, be it social, relaxing, or a quiet spot to focus.

Since work is where we spend a large portion of our day, Web.tv decided to make it a fun place to be, with themed offices that are caves, ski lifts, a sail boat, a stage, bar, café, you name it. Scroll on and be amazed.

The stage space allows workers to enjoy their hobbies like playing in a band, staging short plays, reciting poetry.
