Finding a minute's worth of private space and privacy in the modern urban environment is next to impossible these days. Clark Kent would be hard pressed to find a phone booth in big city North America in which to change into his Superman suit. While this series of dividers (fabric with marble bases and wood/metal frames) from THINKK Studio and designer Ploypan Theerachai—Tree, Bush and Nest—are somewhat conceptual in nature, they do have some kind of practical application for our privacy-starved lifestyle. I would, for example, probably slip my noggin' into a Nest to make a phone call if some where installed on the CTA platform.
