DESKSHELL: Privacy in a Half-Shell
February 26th, 2012
Have you ever wanted privacy while working in an open office space? Don’t have enough space to go all-out and install one of those Tetra-Sheds? Then check out the DESKSHELL which hides away your private work (and social networking and Solitaire playing) from your coworkers.
The turtle-like DESKSHELL was created by the design studio Kawamura-Ganjavian. They designed it in response to more and more offices opting for open office space, which clearly has reduced privacy. The shell is made out of sound-absorbing materials, so that you can ruminate in peace.
It might make you look a bit loony, but that being said, it can be handy when you want to work undisturbed for a while, and concentrate at the task at hand.
Of course, if you’ve ever been caught watching porn or are a compulsive Facebooker, your boss will probably think twice before approving this, though.
