A place to call my own

In a world of hot-desking one of the major complaints from users of the DOYYEC was a lack of anywhere to store things. Fine if your work involves sitting in front of a screen but not so good if you have a lot of equipment or samples.


So with that in mind I started looking for storage solutions that would fit with our designs for the DOYYEC. In this case I wanted the storage to be adaptable, acoustically absorbing, well designed and moveable. 


The best supplier seems to be a Scandinavian company called Glimakra based in Stockholm. They have released a line of office storage units which are covered in sound absorbing materials and they are in a variety of sizes and shaped and can be moved and used together. This is an almost perfect match to our requirements. Here are some of the examples I found:

The only thing I’d add would be a touch of colour.


The last thing I considered including would be a couple of architect plans chests for storing photographs and artworks.
