The Design Behind ... The Office Cubicle
The office cubicle wasn't supposed to be a prison, it was created to save us from a dysfunctional workplace. Nikil Saval, author of "Cubed: A Secret History of The Workplace" explains why it failed.
In the 1960s, Robert Propst designed a new office system for the American furniture company, Herman Miller. It was called "The Action Office" and it was meant to free office workers from a setting that wasn't working for them.
