Huddle is a furniture set designed for office and coworking spaces. The research question „How might we design workspaces that support collaboration?” set the project’s goal on offering users an easily rearrangeable and customizable solution for both individual and collaborative work. The set consists of a desk and a shelving unit, which serves as storage and a standing desk. Both elements have high back frames for mounting acoustic panels smoothly fitting to the metal structure. This combination of the horizontal space with a vertical surface, alongside maximizing the available workspace, increases the user's comfort by providing privacy in an open space. The industrial character of workshop furnishings is referenced through durable materials in a modern aesthetic. Huddle furniture fits not only workshops or office spaces but also can be a base for remote work shared by different household members - a „work zone” integrated with the rest of the interior at home.
