Peep

Peeping through

When working with offices and workplace environments the light from the windows are seldom sufficient and furnishings including desks and acoustic screens are effective barriers of light traveling through the room. During our annual experimenting within the Marginal Notes concept, we picked up the light issue and found some early rough sketches of ideas regarding the matter. A transparent “collar” in perforated metal could be fixated with boxes or shelves at any height, like a Tetris game within the collar. This would also make a spacious and visually exciting piece of furniture that was not specifically linked to the office environment. This construction principle was the basis for the Peep series.
