A Workplace that ‘Waves’ Out to You
Japanese designers Nendo have designed this really nice office space in Tokyo. The designers “wanted the usual spaces and functions – meeting space, management, workspace and storage – to be separate but also to maintain a sense of connection between them. To achieve this effect we divided the space with walls that seem to sag and flop like a piece of cloth held up between two hands, enclosing the various spaces more than the usual office dividers but less than actual walls.”
Well few practical problems apart (where do they never exist?) I loved the spaces created by the partitions, almost wave-like, though with a ‘rigid’ fluidity (talk of paradoxs) which i guess is essential in workspaces.
