jonas van put's buzzijungle pushes the traditional boundaries of workspaces

 

 

created by belgian designer jonas van put and presented at biennale interieur in kortrijk, ‘buzzijungle’ for buzzispace is a project that presents a reflection of the designer’s vision on social offices, further pushing the traditional boundaries of the workplace. its aim is it to elevate meetings and social interactions into a vertical office by encouraging users to interact with the structure and with one another. they can climb it, relax and meet in the elevated work-lounge space made from lacquered steel.

‘inspired by the vertical cross-section of a tropical forest, buzzijungle challenges its users to take up a temporary residence in an open-air environment constructed of loungers — where they can enjoy the light that filters through the layers — similar to the way it streams through the foliage of the forest,’ explains jonas van put.

various elements within the structure provide an opportunity for different social interaction through the ‘jungle’. this 10’ x 13’ structure is constructed with woven galvanized aluminum and finished with yellow lacquer. finally, ‘buzzijungle’ creates a towering urban experience for large and small places.
