Step One: Revamp a beautiful 19th century steel industrial hall.

Step Two: Add lush vegetation.

Step Three: Add plastic bubbles over your employees desks.

Wait, what?

Here at The Next Web, we are all about non-traditional office space, but the thought of working in plastic bubbles is baffling. As one of our editors pointed out, these plastic bubbles bring burping and farting to a whole new level of discomfort.

Particularly with the beautiful open office space, why would two companies, PONS and HUOT choose to have their headquarters be so confining?

Blame trendy architect/designer Christian Pottgiesser for this specific case of innovation gone wrong.
