Pop Up Office by Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner

Fold’s out of one sheet of cardboard.

The pop up is made of giant cardboard of 94 x 275 x 200 cm in size and was installed by Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner using masking tape. The cardboard can be totally folded for easy transportation and when intended for use, the user will simply have it expanded.

Check out the video on vimeo.

I am not sure exactly how stable this office would be but I can imagine it would collapse as quickly as it folds away. It is a neat idea that may be successfully translated into another material such as Dibond or even flat panels of plywood.

    Oddly enough, I saw a thing just like this on Engaget a few weeks ago but it was somebody who made a temple out of Lego that folded just like this office. Neat!

    I’d like to see an entire theatre production with fold-out sets.

    Just got an update from Liddy with their spiel..

    “The market demands flexible, mobile employees, ready to work at any time and any place. Pop Up looks like a perfect working station for them. However, the working station is neither flexible nor solid nor practical. What seemed great and magical at first, turns out to be fragile and not functional at all. Pop Up is not advertising a new type of office furniture, Pop Up criticises working conditions.

    The sculpture, entirely made out of cardboard and tape, can be opened and closed like a book.
    Using the technique of pop ups a mobile working station consisting of a desk, a chair and a laptop appears and disappears.”
