The Creative Pigsty

Posted on February 19, 2009 Under Life

When it comes to brainstorming, a walled-off cubicle or sterile office environment can poison innovation. Creative types need an ideal thinking place to get them in the proper headspace. That’s the idea behind The Creative Pigsty at Imaginarte, a room designed to foster a flow of inspiration and insight for the Alicante, Spain-based communications firm. Dreamed up by interior designer Oscar Vidal, who was inspired by sci-fi films of the 60s and 70s, the space features Warren the pig as its centerpiece. With nary a desk in sight — with a Warhol-inspired porcine scheme illuminated by LEDs. In addition to porky patterns, the Pigsty was outfitted with digital hi-fi sound and a multimedia system. Want to take the pig thing one step further? The room also features a snout shaped remote that operates the sliding door. While the space isn’t nearly as dirty as a pigpen, it’s sure to stir up a mess of ideas.
