Studio O+A: Twelve True Tales of Workplace Design Published by FRAME

Studio O+A: Twelve True Tales of Workplace Design hit bookstores in Europe on May 23 and will be available in America the following month. A comprehensive but playful look at the San Francisco firm that revolutionized workplace design, the book from FRAME Publishers takes readers through O+A’s earliest days as a two-person space planning company in Fremont, California to its present day prominence as the creator of groundbreaking offices for Facebook, Yelp, Uber, Cisco, Microsoft and many others.

In keeping with O+A’s unique approach to design, Twelve True Tales reimagines the traditional designer’s monograph as a company self-portrait with quirky design proverbs, behind-the-scenes photos and a graphic novel insert that presents the firm’s history with characteristic irreverence. It also showcases O+A’s best work over 26 years and digs deep into the principles and processes that guide design at this one-of-a-kind company.

FRAME Publishers, headquartered in Amsterdam, is one of the world’s leading producers of books and magazines on design. Twelve True Tales may be ordered now from the publisher’s website at
