Cortina proposes the motif of the curtain as a workplace solution that supports different working styles.

The Pause Stand (above and below) is a resting-period timer that also charges your phone. The movement of the tabs manipulates light to achieve a state of gentle wakefulness, by which time you’re both fully charged and ready to refocus.

The diminutive Peep Wall is a miniaturized privacy device that also manipulates light. The slats may be set to different angles for varied degrees of openness or concentration: “When opened, light spreads into the space. When closed, light gathers on the side for a more immersive atmosphere.”

A bonus: the blades also function as an impromptu magnetized message board, helping keep users organized and informed without taking up space.

Lastly, the Cortina Tab Organizer proposes a new way to store documents. Rather than just “slamming them into a desk,” users simply insert them into the different slots and the gentle tilting motion quickly collates them: “Just as you close the blinds after a day’s work, tap the product to organize your accumulation.”
