Eclipse Partition System evolves according to privacy needs in the office

Designed in response to the increasing need of adjustable private spaces within open offices, the “Eclipse Office Partition System” by Australian designer Marcus Ward Curran is a modular workplace that can evolve and adapt as the needs of privacy and interaction change during the course of the day. Revolving around current office trends of hot desks, just in time furniture and distributed possession, the modular system allows a flexible and pro-active work environment. The Eclipse Partition System consists of four main components; hot desk, pattern table, table partition and full size partition. Each component of the system, when used in conjunction, allows space to be divided into a meeting area, a private space or a breakout zone. Yet these components are movable and flexible, allowing freedom of layout when privacy requirements change.

Encompassing eco-sense principles of respect for the environment and sustainability, the Eclipse Partition System features components to that work together to make more efficient use of space with eco-friendly materials to allow design for disintegration and recycling. Incorporated technology of e-ink allows users to personalize space using immersion of visual stimuli to become a more efficient and productive working environment.
