Lego opened its fifth main office on Friday 28th November and invited the press and special guests for a tour of the facilities.

The new London office now offers the company a base in the UK’s capital. It is the second Lego office to open in England, with one already located in Slough, and adds to the group’s list of main offices across the globe – with other locations being Enfield (USA), Singapore, Shanghai and the main HQ in Billund (Denmark).

The London office is an ‘activity based learning environment’ which means that no member of staff has their own desk or office. Instead, Lego employees can use the entire space and choose a different area to work in every day.

At the opening event, guests were offered a tour of the building and an insight into the Lego’s values and strategy, presented by the Lego Group CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp.

He said: “We have opened a wonderful office that clearly reflects the values of the Lego Group and, most importantly, we have celebrated the inauguration together with dedicated and engaged colleagues, who from their base here in London will work together with almost 14,000 colleagues around the world to ensure that we can deliver great play experiences to even more children. That is an exciting challenge and amazing aspiration.”
