Talking about future offices, their ideas were full of wit and humor. Some said they wanted to work in the forest, with lions and monkeys as neighbors; some said they wanted to work in the space to experience the feeling of zero gravity. Can these fancy ideas become reality? As one of the three brands of DoBe, DoBe WE” was born for this. As a service provider for cultural, creative, sci-tech, innovative enterprises, DoBe breaks the orthodox, invariable, boring office scenes in traditional offices and cultural and creative parks, integrating international cocreation, leisure, fashion, culture and art.
