Sick of your colleagues? Why not work in a bubble: Fantastic French invention keeps you sealed off in the office
The French-designed bubble desk has just taken off in Paris and protects the worker under a plexiglas dome, cutting them off from the rest of their colleagues.
It comes as part of a complete office design that includes a giant communal desk, eight Ficus Panda Trees, a cloakroom and a kitchen.
It ensures the worker remains detached from the sneezes and banter of daily office life although quite what it does for one’s popularity remains to be seen
Steve Bays from Century Office, an office design and supply company based in Essex, said: ‘I can see the benefit of the bubble desk in large public areas such as libraries where people want to shut themselves away and read or something, but I’m not sure it would work in an office.
People like to talk, to consult with each other. You don’t want to have to go and knock on your colleague’s cocoon to talk with them.
