Special Mention -

We scoured the countries many offices to find one that stands tall with all these whacky offices we found abroad and our very own Bangalore’s Myntra is a clear winner. With a fully loaded recreational centre, a gym and beautifully put together décor, Myntra is a clear model of how companies will be designing there offices in India from now on!
