When the going gets tough and you want to "get outta dodge", a weekend retreat or getaway can be the perfect remedy. In fact, some fall in love with the great outdoors so much that sometimes such a retreat is later extended into a lifestyle.
With each banquette on wheels, Malcew has allowed for varying arrangements to give workers different levels of privacy. Each modular unit includes enclosed bench seating, with a partial roof that slants downward. Natural timber walls are lined inside with brightly colored upholstery, to create a design flair, but also to absorb sound.
Open-plan office space may be all the rage, but sometimes you need a little seclusion for the best productivity. Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew’s new Treehouse collection creates cozy modular cubbies in the office for working in small groups or alone. The breakout dividers can be rolled around and reconfigured to suit the creative needs of a company’s thinkers.
