It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.

|Don’t Intrude On My Personal Zone||6:09 AM|
We all have it, what people call the “personal space” or “zone” - the area around us that if impeded on makes us uncomfortable. The Eclipse Office Partitioning System was developed to address the issue of privacy and lack there-of in open plan designs seen in workplaces today. Cubicles don’t exactly illicit hard work so Designer Marcus Curran wanted to create something for the not too distant future. A partitioning system that not only looks good but defines and protects our “personal space”.
The system includes a desk, task chair, expandable hood, integrated speakers, and power all set on casters for true mobility. It makes me think of rollie pollies and I have yet to decide if that’s a good or bad thing. Could you work in something like this?
