As a Corporate Interior Designer, I have been a fan of the 'Aint no Disco, its where we work' website for some years - and as soon as i saw there was a coffee table type book being released I was first on the list for one!

It is packed full of images and original ideas - many which i have not seen on the website before. It's well worth getting for an ideas/inspiration source book.

Cant wait for the next edition now!....

Subtitle of the book is Creative Office Spaces, but the book is actually very limited in its scope and insight. It seems that the total scope of Creative means advertising firms and architectural firms. Isn't Apple creative? Isn't NASA creative. Where are the engineers, automotive designers, product designers, city planners, and all the rest of the people involved in creating the world around us? Creativity does not end with advertising or architecture and anyone who thinks it does should get out of their shell.

The photography is classic Architectural Digest sort of stuff. Endless photos of interesting spaces without people in place or work being done. Most of the spaces are impractical. Offices should be designed with people in mind, not as sculptural objects. If you're looking for ways to spend lots of money on impressive spaces, get this book. If you're looking to create practical spaces that integrate work with space and enviroment, then look elsewhere.

This is definitely one of the best (if not THE best) book on office design out there at the moment. Highly recommended for corporate designers as a source of inspiration, and for anyone who is in the business of creative workspace interiors. Well done Ian!

This book was needed for research on ideas for office spaces in our art department. The book itself was very well organized with excellent pictoral examples.
