Cheap Monday’s New Office Is Fit for Modern Pharaohs

Uglycute makes an office for the Swedish jeans brand that’s filled with pyramids instead of conference rooms.

If you want to convince clients that your company is something approaching royalty, you could do worse than what Cheap Monday, a Swedish jeans brand, has done: Turn your headquarters into a modern-day Giza.

The office was designed by Stockholm-based Uglycute and, as the pictures here show, it’s chock full of grand little pyramids — like a leftover set from Cleopatra, except everyone’s blond and Marc Antony’s some 6-foot-tall hunk in skinny jeans named Sven. Or something.

TrendOffice reports that employees use the pyramids as conference rooms. Apparently, dogs do, too:

It might seem like whimsy for whimsy’s sake, but the pyramids address a legitimate problem in open-plan offices: How to create little epicenters of visual and aural privacy in what’d otherwise feel like a giant fishbowl. That said, we’re not sure pyramids are the best metaphor for a corporate setting. After all, they were built as tombs, not castles. It’d be like holding meetings in a mausoleum, albeit a really cool one.
