Ideas pop in a work environment that is nimble, open and innovative in an environment where people take time to PLAY. Traditional workplace generally amounts to an ever increasing work load, a lack of real human interaction, and an uninspiring office environment, where fun is discouraged.


The Indy Hall studio was an open ended studio project with no real problem to tackle. So, two other MID students became members of the local coworking organization called Independents Hall to explore the possibility of developing a stimulating workplace, supported and inspired by elements of play (coined as Pl-rk).


Pl-rk is meant to enhance collaboration, spawn innovation, strengthen productivity and improve mental, physical and social wellbeing.
