‘COOL’ design-conscious offices are really just light, airy prisons, according to workers.
Marketing assistant Tom Booker who works at Red Dot Media which has big windows and a ping-pong table said: “All that fancy shit wears thin pretty quickly.
“Then you realise you’re still just in a massive building with a bunch of tossers, slaving away for the benefit of the shareholders. Every day, forever, like any job.
“There’s only so much ping-pong a person wants to play.”
Emma Bradford, who works at an office which won a design award for its warm textured feel, said: “Even the toilets have a stylish modernist feel, which I never fail to notice when I’m in there crying every lunchtime.”
