Spectrum Workplace have recently completed this Funky Office Interior project for the Friday Media Group – a thriving digital media company based in Sussex.
“You were fantastic from day 1. You guided us through the processes and helped us create an amazing workspace.

Friday Media Group approached Spectrum Workplace to help them develop designs and concepts which would not only fit in more staff but also provide a completely new funky office interior design. They also wanted to transform the company breakout area to help staff morale and productivity.
Director Sam Kidger said “we wanted to create an environment that was fun and enjoyable so we could get people to spend a bit more time here after hours. I think that has already worked – we’re seeing people spending more time in the office in the evenings – they don’t have to do that but they feel they’d like to do that as it is a great working environment. If we can get an extra hour out of everyone a week that’s an extra 52 hours a year so that makes a huge difference to our productivity. We’ve achieved our goal of creating an environment that helps our productivity – it’s been great!”
One of the main challenges was to transform the original dull and boring office without disrupting the 150 staff who worked literally day and night. We asked director Laura Colby how the installation went and she replied “that was the shocking part of it! I thought there would be a lot of down time and people stopping work and having to let people work from home, but actually there was hardly any down time at all, if any! That was the highlight for me – it didn’t affect the day to day and we were able to have our new office in a matter of weeks without it spoiling our working environment. That was the best part for me – very smooth!”
A key feature of the new funky office interior was the Hive meeting pod. This bright pink circular meeting pod dominates your view as you come up the stairs to the main office area.
