The open space is an inevitable solution for businesses looking for a better economy. It should be a factor of interaction between services, reactivity and creativity. The lack of intimacy and confidentiality in the working space increases stress that can be harmful to the workers. Cellulose aims at improving the quality of relationships between workers by creating honest exchanges preserved of external influences. Cellulose enables to increase the collective efficiency by offering a space of temporary retreat away from the bustle and by encouraging privileged moments of confidential exchanges, creativeness and decisions. Cellulose locates itself between furniture and room, it is designed for individual or small group (up to 4 people) work. Visible and accessible by anyone, it belongs to the everyday life of the colleagues. Isolated from noise or visual disturbances, it offers a serene zone out. Removable and easily attainable, Cellulose represents an innovative and play alternative to the classic meeting room.

Cellulose is a 2,40×1,26m honeycomb cardboard space. It can be easily implanted on a space or on an exhibition stand for its minimum size and the possibility of plugging it on wheels. It is sold in an unfolded kit saving up volume and it only necessitates a few minutes of assembling without tools to be quickly operational.
The honeycomb fireproof cardboard offers a great mechanical resistance (300 kg per m2) which lasts many years. The cardboard also represents an incredible economy of material since it is composed of 90% air because of the honeycombs. The material actually used is 30% recycled and can be entirely recycled once passed its age limit. Moreover, it is produced in France lowering it ecological print.
