|BuzziHives by Alain Gilles for Buzzispace|
Belgian designer Alain Gilles has quite simply wrapped a protective sheet around two seats to create a space in which two people can conduct instant meeting sessions. Called the BuzziHives and designed for BuzziSpace, these welcoming cocoons can be used stand-alone or in groups to punctuate the layout of an office.
The walls not only serve as a screen to shield occupants from view, but also as sound insulation. The structures come with or without a roof, depending on the need and general noise reverberation characteristics of a specific area.
