This Think Cube is available in two variants and an infinite number ofcolors.
The summer version is not insulated and is more of a garden house forwhen the sun is showing. The paint is biological, so no chemicals, and thecraftsmanship comes from Germany. The playful character is due to the roundwindow and of course the unusual shape. Kids love it and it's a wonderful placeto focus.
The Think Cube in the winter-proof version is firmly insulated and hasthree-walled glass and a built-in stove. Electric lines. Colors arecustomizable (see diagram), there are built-in wall cabinets and an elegantwork table.
Option for bed and toilet (not standard). Do you want a color accent inyour garden: the Think Cube brings it.
Offices become living space, living space becomes office. What was stillunthinkable at many companies in January 2020 is suddenly possible as a resultof the Corona crisis and is even called challengingly 'the new normal'.
According to surveys and our own experience, a majority have beenconfronted with working from home. Sometimes this confrontation has beenpositive, especially when the location (read: the home office) is pleasant andstimulating. Connecting flexibility, private environment and work is new andchallenging! Arrival and departure times can shrink significantly. Travel costsare not incurred and you can sometimes declare for your future 'Design GardenStudio'.
However, due to personal living conditions, you cannot always work wellat home. Sometimes children make noise in the house during the day, then thereis simply no room available. We often live too small in the narrow Netherlands.
The Think Cube is then an extra 'refuge' or studio where you can workundisturbed and which is also tax-deductible as a work space. It is even morefavorable if your employer also participates in the initial costs of purchaseand converts your monthly travel costs into studio costs.
Is the cube supplied with electricity?
Yes, there are pipes and sockets. On request, the cube can be equippedwith an additional installation. The electrical cables are already installed inthe floor of your Think Cube.
What do the surfaces of the Think cube look like?

The round window framesare painted opaque white. The floor is oiled solid parquet.
