Bedouin was designed for Icon as a free-standing screen or room divider with a short hood. The form was inspired by the way an alcove in a noisy coffee bar helped to partially blank out ambient noise. The two sides and the hood combine to create a simple and effective way to maintain privacy in an open area. It has glides so that it can be easily positioned to be used as an impromptu phone booth or grouped with other ‘Bedouin’ to form a wider private setting. It is a flexible solution for open environments.
