Inspirational Workspace – Web.tv Office Design

By . Filed in Inspiration

We are fans of unorthodox art such as sketches on Starbucks cups, on street pavements, on the side of buildings etc. Occasionally we enjoy checking out office designs and sharing ideas on how to spruce up your work space at home. Today, however, we are treated with an inside look into Web.tv’s office design.

Office Space

Web.tv is a new-age social video network, which allows users to create their own channels like namesurname.web.tv. They provide you with the right tools to share your videos, make professional live streams or even basic ones just with a personal computer and a webcam. We’ve been given a special inside look into their amazing office and we’ve sent our contact from Web.tv Deniz, a few questions to reveal insights into what inspired their awesome interior design.

Let’s check out what they have to say about what happened behind the scenes when they dreamed up the office.

cultural and modern themes

Where did the inspiration of your office design come from?

Office

As a technology company, we pay attention to how other international companies design their offices. We don’t want to copy their office designs but we wanted to create something unique.

Office

Our inspiration came from Bursa, the city where we are located. There’s even an area designed with a moon and star which refers to flag of the Turkish Republic.

Each of the objects in the office refer to a famous item or a place in Bursa, while the second floor has an Ottoman Time (16th and 17th century) Turkish house design.

The Masterminds

Were some of the design ideas given by people who work there?

The main idea came from our CEO Mr. Murat Yaniklar, his sister-in-law was the architect who drew up the plans while his lovely wife decorated rooms of the office.

The company’s Vice Manager Mr. Gokhan Yalcin also put a lot of effort into the designing process. Because of their amazing vision, many people inside the company supported the designs.

One-of-a-Kind Working Environment

What kind of working environment did you want to achieve from creating the unique spaces we are seeing?

Bar

The aim was to create lots of free spaces and comfortable working areas. The extreme design and colourful environment make our employees happy, making it easier for them to feel like it’s a second home instead of an office.

Music

Another aim was to incorporate past elements of Bursa with a futuristic and modern view. This can be seen in the objects found throughout the office.

Purposeful Designs

Tell us about the smaller workspaces, particularly those that do not look like regular offices. Are those areas for meetings instead of active workspaces?

Pink Room

The entire area was created to be open and free so people can work anywhere they like and won’t have to settle on one specific desk.

Library Lounge

We have a cable car space that was designed for meetings, group work or to welcome our visitors.

There is even a boat which lets people feel like they are a crew on the boat enjoying the background view from a small seaside town in Mudanya, Bursa.

There is also a furry, egg-shaped room with a special background. It actually refers to floss since Bursa has been famous with its valuable silk for a very long time.

If I were a new employee at Web.TV, where would my desk be?

Free Working Area

You can work anywhere you want but we have certain rooms that belong to specific project teams.

Where is your favorite place in the office and why?

Play Area

I have more than one favourite place in the office like the play area and fitness room.

Fitness

However, I enjoy the rest area the most. The peaceful room with massage chairs allows me to take a short nap after a busy day. I can also watch the fishes in the aquarium to relax.

Resting Area

If that doesn’t work, most of us fall back on our special furry friend named IP. It’s loved by everyone working here and IP’s task is to go around the entire office to ask employees to take a break and play.
