Designers: Spector Group & Ben Kaufman

Crowdsourced product maker Quirky's office sits on the seventh floor of a former warehouse built in 1875, located in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood. Many of the office's furnishings are repurposed items--a cluster of high school lockers serves as the reception desk. While some companies are cagey about how their products are made, Quirky's product lab is the office's centerpiece: It's located smack in the middle of the floor.
