Inspired by industrial architecture and storage rooms – the Hako soundproof booths improve the acoustic quality of contemporary office spaces. Meaning ‘a box’ in Japanese, their name refers to a traditional Japanese grid systems and highlights the modular look of its structure. The variety of components allows us to create multifunctional architectural pieces: from private pod to meeting room accommodating several people. As the bottom part of the booth is eliminated, it features mobility, meets the needs of disabled people and facilities cable management, and all that without compromising stability. Work comfort is given a boost thanks to automatic light and silent fans. Dividing office space without building permanent walls, Hako ensures privacy during meetings.

I’m inspired by things that happen on the periphery and at the intersection of disciplines, cultures and experiences. Regardless of the scale, form or style of the product, designing “experiences” is always the priority. Frame, material and detail is a form of communication with the user.
