The Coolest Office Ever

I will start with a preface. There is a company, in Oakland CA called Because We Can. Run by a brilliant husband and wife team, they make positively brilliant stuff from entire offices of decorations and furniture, to lovely and astonishingly affordable bits of furniture for your home.

I heard about them, however, because of a game studio in San Francisco, Three Rings, who thanks to Because We Can, have the single coolest office space the world has yet seen.
Done up to themes like 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, with everything from false hatch doors, robots in closets, and a bookshelf that's actually a hidden door to a plush meeting room that looks more like a gentleman's club house.

And did I mention the single best part? The SQUID SOFA? No? Severed tentacles from a giant squid attack make up a sitting area for meetings and games.

Complete with baby octopus bean bag pillows.

Oh yeah, this is going to be MY living room someday.

Cool company.

There is a link there to a organization called "twohands" that helps save lives, and I am trying to get the word out.

I've seen pix of this office space before, seriously drool-worthy. The company that created the space RAWKS!

Perhaps we could organize a field-trip?
