Review

"Full colour pictures and detailed case studies provide a valuable insight into the most innovative companies…" (In Design, May 2010).

"For the past year, Groves has been travelling the offices of some of the most successful companies in the world. As well as showcasing some envy-inducing workplaces, the book explores the relationship between the working environment and corporate productivity. Groves' book concludes that providing a stimulating environment filled with extensive leisure facilities and areas for relaxation is key to creating a more profitable business." (The Independent, April 24, 2010)

AWESOME, AMAZING, MESMERIZING BOOK! That's no hype. This book OVERdelivers on the promise to show you workplaces you'd die to work in.

I brought it home and before I could spend any time with it, my 8 & 10 year old kids saw it and looked through it cover to cover. I kept hearing them say stuff like "Wow, that's SO COOL!" and "I wish that was MY room."

I'm afraid to take it back to work. As cool as our office already is, I'm afraid my staff will start to say things like "Ooooh, we need to do THAT in our office."

Inspiring book about the creative industry in large companies. I Wish I Worked there gives a beautifully presented inside look at the design groups within companies - sometime which can take you by surprise. Gives inspiration both on interiors as well as creativity in business. I would recommend the book to design organizations, those who are looking to make their environment more atuned to inspriring creativity, as well as those who are just curious about the kooky creative cousins in business.

This is a book which you can see just from an initial flick through has had a huge amount of care and time put into it. It's a pretty remarkable collection of environments which, to be honest, almost everyone would want to see the inside of, never mind 'design folk'. Being able to gain access to all of these must have been a monumental feat. Thouroughly recommend it to all design based companies in search of inspiration for their 'next' environment and also to companies outside of the design space to see what they could do to inspire their staff to be more productive and comfortable without having to resort to artificial goal setting and bonuses.
