Workspaces have continuously evolved from cubicles, to vast open workspaces, back to savoring privacy. Now, some companies are banking on single-person workspaces making a comeback.
Mitsubishi Estate Co., a Japanese real estate investment company, is tapping into that demand by offering Telecube, a phonebooth sized workspace in collaboration with office furniture maker Okamura Corp and video conferencing software firm V-Cube Inc. The 13 square foot, soundproof space comes with a desk, seat and power outlets. Mitsubishi Estate has revealed plans to install 1,000 Telecube units by 2023.
