A concept space by Toronto-based Dubbeldam Architecture + Design attempts to answer the question ‘How do you work?’ as part of Toronto’s Interior Design Show 2013 (IDS13). The new exhibit is presented by steel space, a container-based event design company.

Four studios were each given a shipping container to realize an idea for a workspace. Dubbeldam responded with ‘Pop-up Office’ a cubicle comprised of wooden modules made out of discarded shipping palettes that can be rearranged according to the user’s needs. The modules are broadly divided by the concepts ‘Focus’, ‘Collaborate’, ‘Lounge’ and ‘Refuel.’

The project’s aim was to create a working environment for a global culture, defined by dynamism and mobility; it’s only requirements a work surface and a place to plug in. The interiors of the space function like a continuous skin that folds to provide seating and storage.
