FunPlus is a mobile social gaming company that puts fun first for players worldwide.
The company’s signature game Family Farm is enjoyed by over 6 million players each day and this number is constantly increasing. David Ho Design Studio realized the company’s HQ office in Beijing.
Founded in 2010, FunPlus (https://www.funplus.com/) employs over 400 people and is headquartered in Beijing, China. Designer David Ho’s (www.davidho.cn) main idea is to make its virtual games into a reality, where FunPlus employees can work and have fun in. In every corner of its office, there is always a different FunPlus game, which decorates its walls, floors and ceilings. So, to match this creative tech industries feeling, David Ho is ploughing energy into designing offices that look more like adult playgrounds than a place of work, in the hope that it will make their employees more creative.
The client and the designer both believe that creativity is a vital part that will help spark conversations, collaboration, and encourage people to be playful and crucially generate great ideas. It will also impress the client’s clients and help FunPlus with talent retention and recruitment.
When entering the main door, a giant glowing FunPlus logo will greet you as you walk through its creative studio
Once you enter in FunPlus HQ office there is a reception desk that is plastered with its most popular game, Family Farm
The walk-in meeting/waiting room of FunPlus HQ office, shaped like an oversized company logo, is on the left-hand side of the reception desk
The structure of FunPlus HQ office encourages employees to think like its customers, so a relaxing pantry is filled with comfortable seats and sofas
FunPlus HQ office is designed just like its game, Family Farm, and it has an exact replica of a beautiful red wooden barn house. The barn serves as a chatting hub and two wheelbarrows filled with greenery accentuate the farmyard feeling
In the FunPlus HQ office there is also an “oxygen corner” featuring natural plants and a timber floor, with a swing chair for people to fully relax amidst the “fresh air”
In the FunPlus HQ office hot air balloon seats and tree house seats are built in order to give the impression of a fun and playfulness environment
