Rewrite: Workspace that looks like a giant egg

rewrite-gamfratesi

Denmark-based designers GamFratesi have created a prototype for an egg-shaped work environment that they call Rewrite.

The screen is upholstered and covered with textile because of its visual and acoustic characteristics. It has a cave-like shape and creates a secure and intimate sphere, which partially closes out disturbing light and sounds. It has a double sided acoustic function that protects against noise from the outside as well as from the inside.

What can you say about this design? Is it futuristic, or just plain silly?
