As part of its conceptual design series called 'Provocation,' Fast Company's Co.Design had design studio Rapt create a vision for what cubicle design might look like in the future. For the project, Rapt came up with two innovative ideas, both of which are made to provide people with private space for individual work that requires focus, as well as accommodate meeting areas for collaboration.
While one futuristic design by Rapt introduces cubicles that sit on warehouse robots for ease of movement and flexibility in an office, the second cubicle design envisions "spatial privacy voids" created by a release of non-toxic fog. According to Rapt, the latter solution has the potential to provide both visual and acoustic privacy.
The needs of the modern workplace demand flexibility and with the implementation of more open-concept spaces than ever, privacy is also highly important.
