Like it or not, the open floor plan has become a staple of growing startups and other creativity-oriented office spaces. But those seeking to shut out distractions or escape the oppressive gaze of their coworkers have had few ways to fight back. Luckily, one design firm took matters into their own hands to help us reclaim some private offices space.
Consisting of four hooks and a series of interconnecting plastic components, the Veil creates a hanging privacy partition in a matter of minutes. Each Veil consists of both opaque “closed” pieces and more translucent “open” pieces that easily snap into place, giving you complete control over how much light (or unwanted attention) makes it through. Functioning on a sort of grid, the pieces can be rearranged over time to suit the evolving needs of your workspace—or just your aesthetic whims.
Wanting to carve out some space in their own office, San Francisco design firm Box Clever created the partition for easy use around the floor. The concept was such a hit among visitors to the office that they formed a spinoff company, MatteChrome, to sell their creation.
A one square-meter kit will cost you $99, but combining multiple sets opens up a wide array of easy-to-assemble office design possibilities. After all, if Veil looks good enough to hang in the window at SF MOMA’s Art store, it can surely help you to introduce some picturesque privacy to your workspace.
