Nicole McIntosh, Jonathan Louie
While you might call them monotonous and monolithic or repetitive and continuous, for generations the cubicle has been the defining feature of the office space. We recently set out to comprehend the cubicle, its assembly and surfaces, by collecting and drawing images of cubicles from magazines, movies, and museums. Below are some of the things we've found and made - from stage sets to mock-ups - while designing cubicles for a new work environment.

The research was done in conjunction with the design for the identity of Sharecuse, a co-work space in Syracuse, New York.
