The Brain Embassy: An Inspiring Co-Working Space in Warsaw

Co-working spaces have been popping up in cities all over the world as more people work remotely. If you’ve ever worked at home, you know how hard it can be to get work done with a plethora of distractions around. Having a place to count on when you need to crank it out is key and luckily Warsaw, Poland, has recently joined the co-working revolution with The Brain Embassy. The 3000-square-meter space was designed mode:lina™, in cooperation with Adgar Poland, consisting of room after room of inspiring workspaces that will no doubt get the creative juices flowing.

The design concept is based on the human brain, hence The Brain Embassy name, which has over 100 billion neurons that receive, process, and then transmit information by way of synapses, helping us to think, act, and discover. With that in sight, the designers created a series of innovative spaces that reference the human mind with things like three-dimensional elements that were inspired by neurons and synapses.

Besides creating thoughtful co-working spaces, the designers aimed to design the spaces in hopes of establishing a community of like-minded people.

Conference rooms were inspired by great minds, like mathematicians, artists, chemists, architects (spot the room above with building blocks), scholars, photographers, and fashion designers.
