With the trend of open plan and accessible office spaces firmly taking root, many offices have attempted to make their spaces more uncluttered and less sequestered. This is often achieved through the use of glass as it maintains an inclusive vibe while still affording the required privacy. This is a welcome change from the compartmentalised offices, typically characterised by the 80s and 90s , which often isolated workers.
Sticking within this ethos has often proved difficult for many companies, especially start-ups or ones with limited funds. This is because ordering custom panes of glass can be time-consuming and costly. Schiavello has therefore attempted to solve these difficulties by designing the i.box.
According to them the i.box is:
A 360-degree panoramic glass structure made up of interchangeable panels for easy assembly and disassembly, i.box fosters a transparent and inclusive culture, employed by today’s most progressive organisations.
Designed to optimise functionality and promote information hubs within open plan environments, i.box is completely variable offering countless configuration possibilities, i.box’s practicality is further enhanced with optional shelving, power ducts, whiteboards and other accessories.
