Who’s Ready To Climb Inside This “Office Box?”
Well, you know what day it is: “What The Friday!?!?!” – and that means, new ways to make the best of #QuarantineLife!
Yes, this is the “Otegaroom”, a tiny soundproof mini-office for your apartment!
An “Office In A Box”!
Yes, this is an office you can put in your home or apartment! You just step inside for privacy!
Of course, the investigative Reports at SoraNews24 had the story!
As SoraNews24.com reports:
“Soundproofing company Pia Living’s new ‘Otegaroom’ — that’s a compound word of “otegaru,” meaning cheap or simple, and “room” — may be the answer to your prayers, as it offers the ability to install an even tinier room inside your existing living space that comes packed with plenty of soundproofing, LED lighting and even a ventilation fan to ensure you can carry on phone calls, meetings and even private guitar jam sessions without worrying about noise pollution.”
That’s right: a well ventilated box for extra privacy while working at home!
They go on to report:
“The walls of the room contain sandwiched boards that work in tandem to keep sounds both insulated from outside noises and absorbed so that sound doesn’t leak out. Apparently, this system means that you’ll both be protected against and prevented from spreading sounds around a volume of 15 decibels. The room is also equipped with a neat little desk to sit at for when you need to use your laptop.”
Hmmm…what do you think?
The “Otegaroom” Has Special Features Too!
That’s right, it’s much more than just a box!
There are holes in the walls so you can insert electrical cords, and the whole box only weighs 50 kilograms (110 pounds) before the desk is installed!
As for the price, the “Otegaroom” can be yours for just 198,000 yen or $1,855!
