Dutch telecoms operator KPN has redesigned some of their (presumably underused) phone booths as smoking rooms.

Next Nature spotted an interesting phenomenon in the Netherlands recently. It seems Dutch telecoms operator KPN has redesigned some of their (presumably underused) phone booths as smoking rooms.
Next Nature shares some thoughts on the transformation:

Nonetheless, it is kind of fascinating that ‘calling’, which used to be constrained in fixed lines and locations, is now entirely mobile and it is now socially acceptable to call almost everywhere: restaurant, train, toilet, airplanes, operahouse, etc. While smoking, which used to be mobile and done everywhere, is becoming increasingly limited to designated locations.
