These days, we face constant time pressure. Bowing under the breakneck speed of modern life, we live in a state of perpetual stress. We are told to slow down and take regular breaks, but often there simply isn’t a suitable space on hand. ‘MUTE’ by Floor Hopman provides that space. Sit back, read a book, or take a nap: just climb the ladder and access quality alone time instantly. Covering the raised cubicles are semi-transparent layers of textiles for a calming effect, cutting out external impulses while providing privacy. Designed as a healthy escape from hectic environments everywhere, from office buildings to airports.
