Office spaces are fast becoming not just a fad but a necessity for creativity and optimal productivity. The Last edition of Office Tours revealed the space the humans of a digital agricultural platform work out of.

This week, our journey takes us into the world of Imaginarium, a company that helps brands carve niches by creating, inspiring, relatable and addictive experiences. The company was founded by Ferdinand Adimefe four years ago.

The newly occupied office, tagged 'Camp Wonderland' affords the Imaginarium team an environment that is open to the creative communities around them.

Imaginarium has four distinct niche products that address needs in the culture, lifestyle, sports and entertainment industries. Through these four content curation platforms -- Kick, Jive, Zamari, Margic Carpet Studios -- Imaginarium aims at addressing consumer needs from the practical use of technology.



Our tour guide today is Chidozie Igweonu, Product Lead at Magic Carpet Studios (a product of Imaginarium). He takes us through 'Camp Wonderland' providing necessary insights to what inspired the office setup by Ifeoluwa Olawore, the interior designer.

Danfo themed outdoor work area: A typical chill zone

We used something familiar that is the 'danfo' and the yellow colour that is evident all around Lagos, Nigeria. We host meet ups, sit-outs and company outdoor activities here. The green you see everywhere is deliberate because it represents life. -- Chiedozie Igweonu.

Welcome Area

The idea of having a reception is an Imaginarium style. The walk in area is designed to welcome visitors into the office and encourages a walk-in culture.

Open Work Area

It is as simple as it gets, no personalised tables and cubicles. Collaborate and create without unnecessary employee restrictions.

Let's go upstairs

The emoji made of sticky notes is a lovely concept. And the fire extinguisher, which most times is lost in plain sight, is brought to life with the scuba diver wall art.

The Forte

Heads of departments and partners work out of here. That's how the space got its name. We stopped by while the employees that work out of here were out on meetings.
