The Wildest Office in the World

Called, “Americas largest invention factory,” Davison’s Inventionland is quite possibly the most eccentric office building in the world.  With treehouses, giant shoes, boat’s and more in place of cubicles, it all makes sense for a firm that boasts production of 2,000-2,400 new inventions each year.  The 61,000 square foot home to this “wonderland specifically designed to spark imagination and foster creative thinking” is in Pittsburg, PA.  It has a state of the art production studio, new product development factory, and is packed with talented designers and creatives.

The invention factory, brainchild of George Davison, caught the eye of Entrepreneur magazine in 2008 with the article calling him a “creative genius”.  Everything from metalworking to woodworking to molding, laser cutting, prototyping, circuit board construction, and more take place in a state-of-the-art prototyping facility. The facility pumps out its own ideas, but also offers services to help others with ideas to bring those dreams to life. Whether you have an idea or not, a visit can be arranged to see this wild place, but what the heck, if you are going to stop by you might as well submit a couple of crazy ideas to see where it goes…

  1. Pretty wild – would be like working at PeeWee’s Playhouse. This place is definitely on my list for my next stop in Pittsburgh. Nice to see some very creative risk taking.

  2. LOL can afford a ridiculous workspace, but they have to use HUGE CRT monitors? WTF

  3. How about individual office spaces which are in the form of giant balloons and the office cubicle being where the giant wicker basket hangs…go beyond the clouds – I would love an office in a giant balloon

  4. How come the wildest office in the world still has a guy in a shirt and tie sat at a desk?
