There has been a profound shift in the way we work; when all we need is a surface to work on and a place to plug in, the working environment is no longer static. Mobility, adaptability and flexibility are the new key elements of the modern office. The POP-UP OFFICE is an installation using modular units that can be combined in different ways. Built out of reclaimed wood palette boards, separate modules collectively form the modern work place, facilitating both individual work and collaboration. The result is a workspace that is simultaneously bare bones and tailored to the individual. In sinuous forms, the reclaimed boards morph from wall and floor planes into furniture elements. Stripping away the superfluous, the POP-UP OFFICE embodies adaptability. The possibilities are endless; easily transported, reconfigurable and rapidly deployed, the POP-UP OFFICE itself morphs in conjunction with workplace needs.
