Tiny houses were once highly sought after for their Instagram-able nature and space efficiency. Now, tiny offices may be emerging as the hot new trend amidst the Covid era.
Nick Foley, CEO and founder of Denizen, says that people are looking for serenity in their workplace now that they have remote working abilities. After previously serving as chief product officer of bike-sharing company Jump Bikes, Foley is attempting to apply this idea to the office.
To address the need for an alternative work environment outside of homes and main offices, Denizen is set to create tiny standalone offices that feature all of the necessary amenities of an office.
Each tiny office features outlets, USB plugs, cameras for video conferencing, speakers, a whiteboard wall, windows that can turn opaque for more privacy, and more within 100 square feet.
The company originally planned to offer these offices on a monthly subscription basis. However, thanks to high demand for new office environments, Denizen plans to sell these standalone offices so workers can keep them close to their homes.
“The real dream is honestly very similar to Jump Bikes… Figuring out how to collaborate on the neighborhood level to make these really amazing shared use amenities,” said Foley.
