The Ideal Cubicle

Thinking Inside a Box: The Ideal Cubicle

It may seem like describing a particular workspace as an "ideal cubicle" is an attempt to be ironic, but the office designers at IDEO who teamed up with Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert) to create this ideal cubicle weren't intending irony in its creation. The design boasts "practical considerations" like "modules for seats, computers, displays, and lights; more whimsical modules provide a hammock, an aquarium, and a hamster wheel." The first cubicle was introduced in 1968 — just 40 years ago workplaces were cube free! I've never had the cubicle experience, but I don't exactly feel left out about it. Have you lived the cube life?
