Toronto-based multidisciplinary design studio Dubbeldam Architecture + Design has unveiled a concept workspace built inside a shipping container. The ‘Pop-Up Office’ offers the key elements of the modern office: mobility, adaptability, and flexibility.

Pop-Up Office Features Modular Units For Individual Work & Collaboration

The installation uses modular units made from reclaimed wooden palettes, which can be combined in different ways to create a workspace tailored to the user. Designboom notes that they are each divided by four concepts, ‘focus,’ ‘collaborate,’ ‘lounge,’ and ‘refuel.’

These separate modules facilitate both individual work and collaboration, with the reclaimed boards morphing from the wall and floor into furniture elements.

Stripping away the superfluous, the Pop-Up Office embodies adaptability. The possibilities are endless; easily transported, reconfigurable and rapidly deployed, the Pop-Up Office itself morphs in conjunction with workplace needs.
