Students from ECAL University have created a series of redesigned office cubicles for alternative functions.

The cubicle system the students chose to use was the 'Workbay Office System' created by French designer, Eric Bouroullec. The students aimed to change the function of each cubicle and they were able to design a bar, a farming space, napping areas and standing work desks. Bouroullec's Workbay system was initially designed to combat the rigid cubicles that characterized the 60s.

These redesigned office cubicles offer opportunities for office workers to step away from their work and enjoy some down time. According to the workshop's leader, Camille Blin, "just by adding really simple structures to an existing Workbay, it becomes a space for employees to step away from work and exchange in a more casual way."
