THINK INSIDE THE BOX
OOf designs and produces furniture that revolutionises flexible working with mobile devices in offices and public spaces.
The explosive growth of smartphones and tablets in combination with cloud computing allows people to work from anywhere at anytime and makes it possible for corporations to dramatically improve efficiencies.
OOf’s original product, the OOf Box, is a touch down space, offering acoustic and visual privacy to mobile workers when using their smartphones, tablets or laptops. It helps organisations to implement comprehensive BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and Cloud Computing strategies, delivering benefits of higher productivity, lower costs and key employee retention. The small footprint of 0.84sqm means that the OOf Box is well suited to co-working, business clubs and third spaces.
News - Breaking Through Exhibition
This exhibition explores how current research by the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art is translating into new products, services and
systems – and breaking through to achieve impact in the market, public discourse
Inspired by the Helen Hamlyn Centre's research into knowledge workers, the OOf Box is exhibited alongside projects by research associates (new RCA graduates), PhD students and senior researchers. Breaking Through demonstrates how emerging ideas can shape alternatives futures in areas as diverse as energy use, office life and ageing populations – when ethnographic research and people-centred design are considered in tandem. From designs for a new London taxi to innovations in healthcare and developments for digital communities, there is an emphasis on user push rather than technology pull as the driving force to improve people’s lives through design. Curated for the London Design Festival 2014, Breaking Through features projects with international industry partners to bring new concepts to market, as well as government and third sector collaborations to influence thinking and enhance public services and social inclusion. The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design is the RCA's largest centre for design research. Endowed by the Helen Hamlyn Trust, it is dedicated to effecting real-world change. We hope you enjoy the exhibition.
