The IKEA Creative Hub in Malmo, Sweden, is a freeing space wherein many of consumers' most beloved designs from the Swedish furniture giant have found their beginnings. The space serves as the center of ideation for the international company, with features explicitly designed to encourage creativity and brainstorming as much as possible.

One of the most notable aspects of the IKEA Creative Hub is the lack of whiteboards. This isn't to say that IKEA discourages writing on boards during thought sessions, though. Quite the opposite: in the Creative Hub, employees are encouraged to write wherever they see fit, with one of the rooms covered entirely in a whiteboard-like material.

The space also has several different rooms for meetings of various sizes and a library where more introspective individuals can take a moment to read and reflect.
