Lately we have been seeing many IT offices where the design involves punches of vibrant colours. Like the Skype office also located in Stockholm.
I believe colours to be an important aspect when designing an office space. For increased inspiration and productivity colours in the interior should complement the brand. This will strengthen the brands identity. Speaking of productivity this can also be increased or decreased by application of colour. The different psychological effects colours have on us are therefore good to know about.
This is the Lycee Francais Saint-Louis school located in Stockholm. It is designed by Archistudio.
At a first glance I assumed this space to be an office or studio. Mostly because its creative approach and color choice. Schools normally tend to be of the more stagnant type, where color and creativity sometimes seem to be forgotten.
The school is setting them apart from others by creating a more decorative and homey feel. The result is a less intimidate space where school suddenly becomes the place you want to be at.

Hopefully in the future there will be more of these kinds. -Schools were productivity and innovation are keywords.-
Lastly I want to mention the photographer Jason Strong who shot these images. He captured those vivid colors nicely.
