The largest lift in the world?

Each month we find an office that we believe deserves the title ‘Office of the Month’ (previous winners of this illustrious honour include Google and Red Bull).

This month we have updated the converted prize for a special surprise nomination: the largest lift in the world!

We were amazed to see that Mitsubishi have installed five massive elevators in the 41 story Umeda Hankyu Building in Osaka, Japan. The huge lifts can carry up to 80 passengers or 11,574lbs. The dimensions of the lift are massive: 3.4m wide, 2.8m long and 2.6m tall!

The lifts have been designed to take people from the shopping floors at the bottom of the Umeda Hankyu building, to the offices on the higher floors. To keep the passengers entertained, windows have been installed providing one of the best views of the city.

Sadly the lifts at our serviced offices aren’t quite as big as Mitsubishi’s, but we do provide our clients with air conditioning, modern furniture, as well as future proof IT and telecoms systems.
