Wantedly Inc. Office by Draft, Tokyo – Japan

November 1st, 2015 by retail design blog

“To increase people who truly enjoy their jobs”. This is the mission of Wantedly, Inc. which provides a business SNS service, named “Wantedly”. Since their foundation year 2010, they have moved their office 3 times and decided 4th time relocation. We paid attention to creating “a new type of office” which revitalizes creativities or new values. The biggest feature of this office is a wide and open space with antique furniture in a main entrance and lobby area. The wide working space can accept increasing number of staff in a growth corporation.


The design concept is an edgy space with a good sense, having no specific genre. Employees can sit down on the large stair placed in the center of the lobby and watch a screen right in front of their eyes. This space was planned to be used also as event space or seminar room. 7 meeting rooms directly connected to the lobby have windows through which you can see leafy scenery of Shirokanedai area. Surprising and playful interior design with natural scenery, diverse materials and neon signs was completed, showing Wantedly’s philosophy well.
