There is a huge pot with a plant in it in the hall way of our company. Nobody knows what it is and if it's fake or not (some photos can be seen below). We never give it water as well and it doesn't seem he needs it.

If it's not fake, what kind of plant is it and does it need some kind of care?

The leaves feel cardboard-ish. Maybe that's some information you need to identify this plant.

    @Gerwin It is a group of bromeliads glued to a piece of decorative wood. That's why it looks larger.

This is a bromeliad, likely a variety of Aechmea Fasciata. See here for details.
