balance / Armchair


In recent years, most of the offices have been made up of open structures for communication between employees.
But, open offices are difficult for employees to concentrate on their work, and privacy is difficult due to a lack of private space. This means that the door to communication is closed in an open office.
These problems suggest that various spaces should be provided for efficient collaboration.
It can be solved by balancing single-person and public spaces, and by balancing rest and work space through a single-person workspace, 'balance'.
