One of the most pressing issues facing office workers in a cubicle environment? Curbed productivity associated with open floor spaces and their inherent noise, interruptions, and commotion.
Enter the safety and serenity of the Cocoon Cubicle, a new design called “Brody” that was developed by furniture company Steelcase and featured in a recent blog at www.ridiculouslyefficient.com. According to Steelcase Director of Product Design Mark McKenna, these new “space cocoons” give workers a quiet, comfortable place to concentrate on the task at hand.
McKenna determined that office workers get distracted every 11 minutes, often taking another “23 minutes to get back on task. Add those two things up, and most people never get into the flow.” Brody was designed to help eliminate those distractions with privacy screens on three sides, a footrest, armrest, and adjustable tilt work surface…all based on the “idea of flow” and creating longer periods of concentrated, productive time.
Now let’s take the concept a step further because a modern approach with Cocoon Cubicles deserves a dynamic name plate holder to match. NPW Flush Mount Name Plate Holders fit the bill nicely. These clear Acrylic Name Plates attach easily to cubicles – cocoon and otherwise – as well as doors, walls, and desks. Orders with Plastic Products Mfg include double-sided “magic tape” that doesn’t yellow or leave unsightly residue.
Aside from cocoons, glass partitions can also be enhanced. If your cubicle/floor layout is already fairly set with glass wall dividers and partitions, PNHG Cubicle Name Plate Holders help capture a modern office look in a more traditional setting.
