In an era where the payphone is quickly disappearing, the concept of the booth itself has remained, reinvented by Lynton Pepper and renamed the Wiki Booth. The plans to build it yourself are provided under a creative commons - attribution-noncommercial license or have one of the approved builders make it for you.
The Wiki Booth is a hybrid telephone and solo-working booth. It was designed by Lynton Pepper as a smart solution providing extra privacy in shared work space or open plan office environments.
The design includes an integrated desk for a laptop or notepad, hooks for coats and bags, and a receiver for a retro mobile phone handset. Far from being a gimmick, this handset is an integral part of the design: all of which is aimed at reducing noise in a open plan workspace and providing privacy for (and from) telephone calls.
