Open-plan offices are increasingly popular these days - and there are good reasons why they are a productive environment. But sometimes you need a bit of aural and visual privacy. The Koop has been designed for breakout areas when concentration is at its utmost - an egg-shaped cocoon-like chair where you can read a magazine, work on your laptop or enjoy a private phone call in perfect peace. As other people can’t see you, you get a great sense of visual privacy and creative freedom.
And because of its shape the Koop chair offers a greater level of sound protection than open seating offers. Studies have shown that increased peace improves productivity, so the welcome respite provided by this semi-private space is sure to have a positive effect.
In a world of straight edges, sharp angles and hard lines it’s easy to appreciate what Karim Rashid has done by introducing secluded, soft comfort into the business environment. The Koop chair, in short, is a welcome alternative to other available products. This organic, soft, and round object feels inviting, friendly and warm in a physical way. It’s a great accent for straight lines and angular architecture.
