The humble cubicle.
Created in 1967 by designer Robert Propst for Herman Miller, a manufacturer of office furniture, the original cubicle was rather excitingly named the ‘Action Office II’!
Nowadays there’s often nothing exciting about the thought of sitting in the small, partitioned boxes we’re so used to seeing in offices worldwide. Dull and boring has sadly become the norm for workspaces.
But as always there are those creative beings who have thought outside the box (pardon the pun!) and pimped up their cubicle in weird and wonderful ways.
From a garden themed desk, complete with sunflowers and moss, to sitting in a ball pool or working from the Tardis these crazy cubicles are bound to brighten your work day.
Some people have even made a living out of it - Kelley Moore’s style guide, Cube Chic,gathers together design ideas and decorating tips, while showing some of Moore’s own themed workspace makeovers…we particularly like the ‘Nap Cube’ and are now off to install a bed under our desks!
