This past week, our partners over at Coroflot.com unveiled their brand new office on wheels, the Mobile Work Unit (MWU). The MWU is the result of Coroflot.com's collaboration LOS OSOS, a Portland-based design studio known for designing creative retail, workplace, and exhibit environments.

The cheerful unit features polycarbonate siding, wood interiors, bench seating, an open office area, and a food prep station. Rounding out the space is the company's brand new logo on the front of the trailer.

LOS OSOS' Principal Designer, Laurence Sarrazin notes the structure's unique siding:
“The thing I’m most excited about is that the construction is post-and-beam, which alleviates the wall’s function as a structure. So I used polycarbonate as siding, which allows all this light to come in while offering an acoustical barrier.”

Coroflot is a longstanding web platform dedicated to connecting designers with professional opportunities, but the goal of building a physical office space was to bring the company's mission to life.
"Coroflot is a virtual community, but the connections between employers and people seeking work, those are real world connections. We felt it was important to introduce a real world component into what Coroflot does" —Coroflot Co-Founder, Eric Ludlum
Here's a closer look at how the innovative space was built:
Congrats, Coroflot.com and LOS OSOS on a super cool new space!
