The 125 Person Desk

Recently installed into the Barbarian Group’s (an Internet advertising company) offices, the 1,100 foot “endless table” designed by Clive Wilkinson slinks around the 23,000 foot office space.

Before, the Barbarian Group’s offices were the typical office and cubicle setup, but now with the open office and giant snaking table–inspired by city planning styles–coworkers are finding it easier to mingle.

The table also supports company growth–50 more employees could be easily added to the table, and thus the office.

About spikemarlowe

Spike Marlowe and her Siamese twin sister were born to academics in Provo, Utah during the region’s speculative fiction renaissance. Since her teenage years, when Spike’s parents and sister entered the Federal Witness Protection Program--which necessitated the surgical separation of Spike from her sister (if you buy her a couple drinks and ask nicely, Spike may show you the scars)--she has held a variety of odd jobs, including a performer in a wild west show, detective, Bigfoot researcher and writer for an Internet content farm. Recently she found her calling as a Bizarro author. When she’s not writing fiction she works as a street busker in San Francisco. At night she fights crime. Her first novel, Placenta of Love, will be released by Eraserhead Press in November 2011.
