Designed by the Romanian brand Askia Furniture, the Kameleon Office Booth is a pod that takes major inspiration from a Chameleon. The pod is designed to adapt and merge with diverse offices and workspaces, just the way a chameleon does in nature! Askia Furniture believes that offices today are constantly changing and upgrading, and hence require modern solutions that are flexible and functional – and they believe the Kameleon Office Booth could be one!

“Office booths have become very useful products in the office space, but due to their predefined shape and finishes, they can’t be so easily integrated in the design of the office and architects tend to frequently neglect them. We wanted to change that and offer them a product which can fuse seamlessly just about anywhere like a chameleon does in nature,” said chief designer Dragos Motica.
The adaptable pod comes in different sizes and features a panel-based system which makes it impressively customizable. This system ensures that different colored elements can be attached or detached from the pod, allowing users to set it up according to their personal preferences. These elements can be removed from the structural frame at any time. This patented system is what provides the office booth with its ‘Chameleon’ quality, as its switchable exterior panels allow it to have different visual aesthetics at different times!
The interior of the pod includes sound-proof felt panels. These are attached to the inside of the pod using magnets and can be removed quite easily as well. The office booth is also recyclable since it’s built from wood and chipboard. The glass frames are made from aluminum and steel. Besides being recyclable, it’s also flat-packed when shipped, and can be assembled in less than forty minutes, by two people using four Allen keys.
