Wood evolves to give a space different uses, adapting itself to specific needs. This is the philosophy used by designers at the Dubbledam Architecture + Design studio (Toronto) to revolutionise the concept of work spaces with their Pop-Up Office, a design that unites the concepts of mobility, adaptability and flexibility.

According to the creators of this original office, “”when the only thing you need is a work surface and somewhere to plug in, the work environment is no longer static.””  For this reason, the Canadian studio proposes a skeleton created from re-purposed planks and strips of wood taken from pallets that can adapt to the space depending on the particular use required at any given moment.

To achieve a more pleasing finishing, the wooden parts that come into contact with the human body have been treated and sanded down, while less visible areas remain in their natural state.

The various modules can be combined in different ways to create individual and group work spaces, a sitting room or a rest area. Each module consists of separate planes corresponding to the floor, wall and ceiling, and the necessary furniture elements can then be added. Openings between the planks on the wall can be used to attach shelves, creating zones that can be adapted for storage and displaying different objects and utensils.

Designed for temporary use, the Pop-Up Office modules and pieces can be transported and rebuilt quickly and easily, and can be rapidly assembled for one-off events such as outdoor festivals, emergency situations and even as a work space for entrepreneurs.

Above all, the Pop-Up Office is a multidisciplinary reflection on modern work methods that incorporates the foundations of environmentally-friendly design, something we value from L’Antic Colonial.
