Pixiv is a Japanese online community for artists, first launched as a beta test in 2007 by Takahiro Kamitani. The company is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and aims to provide a place for artists to exhibit their illustrations and get feedback via a rating system and user comments. The company is oriented towards interaction, and the space was designed to accomodate for this by the Japanese design firm Teamlab. The office makes use of vibrant and colourful designs, and at the centre of the workplace is an architectural arrangement around a 250 meter desk.
Teamlab has moulded its shape so that a bridge-like underpass allows workers to walk beneath it, directly through the desk. cut-out holes act as private areas that individuals can climb into and remotely work with a laptop, while a three-tiered bookshelf can be ascended and contributes a lofty place to settle above the rest of the facility.
