As companies grow from 10 people to 200, CEOs around the world are making the decision to move their businesses to larger offices, keeping modern designs in mind. With office moves requiring a good amount of storage space, CEOs have found Storitz to be a trusted marketplace to find the cheapest and closest storage locations in their area. And, while renovations are undergoing, Liquid Space makes the burden of finding office space rentals a little easier. To give you a little office inspiration on this mundane Tuesday, we’ve scoured the globe to discover some of the world’s most forward-thinking spaces.
