Wood and cork were used as the main outward facing material, this was done in an attempt to exemplify the company’s humanistic intentions and goals. Thus the use of such warm and welcoming materials was ideal. In contrast to this, expressive furniture and jagged walls were used to help give the feeling of dynamism and creativity – both characteristics any successful IT company will have.
