Slip ‘n Slide To Work We Go

Quirky / Funky

Stairs, schmairs…who needs ’em? Not these innovative execs and business owners who harnessed the creativity of artists and architects alike to create a fun, interactive work environment and an eeeeasy alternative to descending the stairs. As Belgin artist Carsten Höller puts it, “going down a slide is not so special in a sense, but it can make you feel like you are participating in something.” If that something is slipp’n and slide’n at work…I’m in!
