17 Private Workspace Examples

From Alternative Cubicle Workstations to Privacy-Focused Sofas

— October 11, 2019 — Art & Design
In the era of the open-concept office layout, private workspaces become scarce. However, that does not mean that employees don't need an escape from time to time. Whether you prefer to work with zero distractions or you just need a break from the tasking dynamic environment of the modern office, many brands and designers seek to deliver that secluded experience with various privacy-oriented products.

From the Ulpus modular office systems to the Capsule Office Pod, the re-manifestation of the private workspace relies on design. Petra Vonk offers one of the more tech-forward accessory examples in this list with her 3D-knitted acoustic curtains that diminish noise. ROOM, on the other hand, imagines the modern private workspace through aesthetically embellished phone booths for the office environment. These are reported to be a hit among companies like NASA and Google.
