As more and more office spaces and studios adopt an open concept design, micro-environments such as Confessions by Nick Ross offer a great way to maintain an area for privacy where colleagues can conduct intimate meetings, individuals can hold discrete phone calls and more. The Scottish/Swedish designer, who is currently a graduate student at Konstfack in Stockholm, has kept it very minimal in order to disclose the often serious dealings occurring within.

Designed in collaboration with BlÄ Station, Confessions by Nick Ross is made out steel and oak that has been covered with sound-absorbing pressed polyester felt. According to Ross, Confessions "reminds us of what we lose in the era of shared and open communication," while providing a communal area to rectify the situation.
