ARKIZ's Xiaomi Office design features multiple cubbies and quiet spaces for employees to seek silence and maintain their focus. Working in an office can present occasions where coworkers are loud or disruptive, so ARKIZ's design aims to combat this issue.

The Xiaomi Office is filled with quiet spaces such as reading rooms that are set up using a dorm-style approach. These rooms are fairly small with cushioned cubbies built directly into two opposite walls. These spaces are ideal for reading, relaxation and are a great place to enjoy quiet time.

Other areas are designed to avoid occasional noise such as the clear-walled rooms. These pop-up structures feature transparent partitions that are randomly placed in the office. These rooms are big enough to fit one to three people and still encourage a sense of community by using the see-through panels.
