DIY solo work booth “HACOCE”
Highly practical DIY solo booth “HACOCE” that can be customized according to the application
DIY kit includes table, chair, and two outlets
HACOCE was developed as a DIY solo work booth that can be customized in size according to the installation location, targeting the demand for private rooms in offices and universities. The structure is made of wood, adopting the “2×4 (two-by-four) construction method” that has excellent strength, sound insulation performance and heat insulation performance, and the interior is finished with cloth (wallpaper) like a house. It can be dismantled and reassembled, so it can be relocated. By adding parts and arranging the booth, it can be used not only as a remote work or self-study room, but also as a workspace for highly specialized research. It is a highly versatile product that can be used.
Promoting practical experiential learning by students through a product development process that incorporates the student’s
The Harumi Kagawa Laboratory of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Engineering of Kyushu Sangyo University has been collaborating with the Faculty of Human Sciences of Kyushu Sangyo University since 2016 to conduct research on the evaluation of living environments in evacuation facilities.

This time, CODD’s HACOCE has been adopted as a material for these studies, and joint development with Kyushu Sangyo University has started.
In this joint development, students from the School of Architecture and Urban Engineering will conduct demonstration experiments, and not only will they incorporate their unique perspectives and new ideas into future product development, but they will also serve as a place to experience quality management such as performance evaluation and verification during the development process. is also helpful. Demonstration experiment of the first prototype of HACOCE
At the exhibition “KSU VISION DAY” held on November 3rd and 4th, hosted by Kyushu Sangyo University to introduce research results, a demonstration of the assembly of the first unit was held as an initiative of “project-based education” through industry-academia collaboration. I was. In the demonstration, we verified the work process and the degree of difficulty during assembly, and based on the real opinions of students who participated as users, we confirmed the improvement points of the DIY kit for commercialization. In order to further improve this product and expand its lineup, CODD will continue to develop products through industry-academia collaboration with Kyushu Sangyo University.
The structure is delivered as a DIY kit with the same pre-cut wood as the actual residential building.
Easy to assemble with only 4 screws
Since the interior finishing is also DIY, you can choose your favorite pattern for the wallpaper.
In order to check the sound insulation performance and heat insulation performance of the wall, we measured the transmission loss level and four thermal elements, and confirmed the performance in compliance with the Fire Service Act.
