Working together, these curved privacy wraps and specially shaped desks carve out a cocoon-like area for focused work, video calls or quiet conversations. Tufting details on the canopy give it a tailored look, while a portfolio of accessories (hooks, nameplates, integrated lighting, modesty panels, free-standing divider screens and pin-tackable surfaces) allows for diverse office set-ups.
Refining the basic whiteboard, the double-sided Frame Mobile enfolds its rounded corners in a bentwood casing that outlines the inset magnetic writing surfaces and serves as a handle to easily move the unit. Designed by Christian Halleröd and Matti Klenell, the low-iron glassboard is available in two widths, two frame and base combinations, and 24 standard mood glass colours.
A sophisticated merging of architecture and nature, the Bonh collection of cascading planters by Stuttgart studio jehs+laub brings the outdoors inside, and can be used — singularly or in groupings — to create flora-filled space dividers. Each comprises three geometric pots supported by slender structural rods, a rigid counterpoint to the plant life that sprouts from them. Two heights are offered, as are more than 30 powder-coated colourways.
Indigenous Nepalese lokta paper creates the spiral-like motif of the new Tulsi pattern available for 3form’s Varia panels. Handmade by Himalayan artists, the textural material is piped across the screen in unique layers that vary between levels of translucency, taking on the depth of each of the three colourways available — Amber, Pistachio and Obsidian (a transparent option, Pure, is also offered). The panels come in two sizes and five gauges, and can be framed, frameless, suspended and more.
Fully or partially enclosed, these dividers signal that we all need a little privacy.
