A private cocoon one can take refuge in- or rather behind, when working: Belgian designer Alain Gilles’ BuzziCockpit is “a tool for personal privacy and well-being”. Small enough to fit any table or desk (a 60 cm-depth for the side resting on the flat surface), its ergonomically-designed acoustical skills enable the user to create a instantly quieter and private area within the working space (offices, libraries…).
Alain Gilles designed lateral handles to the BuzziCockpit so that it can be pulled closer or pushed back whenever needed, in a single gesture. Upholstered in a recycled fabric (also developped by Buzzispace), available in a large array of colors, the BuzziCockpit is available with a closed back-panel or a partly opened one, depending on the level of intimacy one is hoping for.
