Office has people working in plastic domes in place of cubicles

Looking at sci-fi fantasies of the retro world, they saw the “future” as something where huge transparent domes and flying cars ruled the roost. Well, both of those things didn’t quite happen, but we can rest easy in the thought that this office in Paris at least did some part of the domed things to bring the future closer. There aren’t any boring regular cubicles here, these people sit in transparent plastic domes.

We’re not exactly going to talk about pragmatism and best use of workspace here, because the domes look cool and we don’t work in that office. Also, designed by Christian Pottgiesser, the large wooden desk in the PONS + HUOT office works as the roof of the recreational room
