In an interesting post over at ShedWorking they show furniture pieces that create a more intimate environment within the open office space. This feels strangely familiar to me. Ummm, can you say cubical? Of course these look nothing like cubicles, and somehow their visual reference to a hut or shed gives them a different feeling than an office cube. The word shelter comes to mind when I look at them, somehow more about giving you the space you need more so than dividing the space that is available. Does that make any sense?
