    Of my plants, the ones I think I could grow in an office (not already mentioned) are:

    N. maxima "dark" x talangensis (which means Lady Pauline is a candidate too)
    N. ventricosa x gymnamphora
    N. ventricosa x Tiveyi "A"
    N. Rokko

    Any N. truncata hybrid should do well, as a bonus, they tend to tolerate low humidity well also.

    Maxima X truncata (Problem, gets to over 4foot wide)
    "Gothica"
    Maxima X alata (needs pruning as it is a fast grower and loves to climb)
    Ventricosa X campanulata (dull colour but compact and pitchers look like camps)
    "Black Knight" (stays pretty small)
    "Dyreana"(my all time fav hybrid, makes huge traps, but can reach large diameter (over 3feet))

    I grow all of these and they are happy in low humidity, low light and an array of temps, However Dyreana makes small 20cm traps in less that 40% humidity, but any higher and the 30-35cm traps return, the other hybrids don't care about much and once adapted thrive.
    I have only listed these hybrids as they seem to be my hardiest hybrids and have a broad temp tolerance, I am unsure what your temps are (I am presuming 20-25C).

    I would lean towards the VentXcamp for an inside plant as the plant is full grown at about 1foot diameter, its traps are not very colourful (some flecks) but the traps look very similar to a campanuata.

    Otherwise Ventricosa and maxima should do fine.

    How small does "Black Knight" stay?
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    It's a vigorous hybrid that can easily grow several feet in a year, especially once it reaches the vining stage. It's not going to be a small plant much beyond year one.

    Ventricosa X truncata would probably work well

    I have a few Black Knight, all of which I have had for over 3years, they went from 10cm diameter to 1foot and 2feet long in the first year, but since then they have all only grow an extra foot long and basal like crazy, I am constantly taking cuttings, so I would call it a small plant.
