Microsoft Flux is a Finnish startup community that helps startup companies and freelancers by offering them access to free WiFi, high tech devices, coaches, networking events, and coffee! The community space works like a library or café and is open to all. The mainly open-plan space also includes meeting rooms that can be booked for private appointments. Flux is located in a Jugend-style stone building on Korkeavuorenkatu, opposite a historic fire station that can be seen through the windows in the hallway.
The interior is focused on bright colors, which have been used in furniture frames, sockets and textiles throughout the space. A mix of materials and textures, including velvet, brass, wood and various types of paneling add interest and contrast. From an intimate pillow bay to a collective audience bench, Flux offers various opportunities for lounging. In its entirety, the space is a fresh example of a new type of working environment, and has created a fun and experimental community for networking and new business ideas.
