As people's ways of working change, so do the places we work at. Teleworking, more collaborative work, easier communication and increased flexibility are demanding a change in the furniture of our workspaces and offices. But for much team work we do, every now and then, we need to concentrate on a task and isolate ourselves from the group, visually and acoustically. For these situations, Buzzispace, who we discovered at 100% Design London, offers colourful eco-friendly solutions; space dividers and acoustic products made from 100% recycled PET felt, adopting the 'cradle to cradle' concept.Antwerp-based Buzzispace looks good both in a domestic environment and in current offices. The PET is upcycled again and again, and the biodegradable cardboard structure inside can be returned to nature after its use, following the 'cradle to cradle' philosophy of 'waste equals food'. Buzzispace offers funky room dividers, colourful poufs, lampshades, acoustic self-adhesive tiles and furniture, most of which come totally flat-pack, reducing the environmental impact during transportation. ::Buzzispace
