Local coworking concept Common Desk has been expanding across North Texas in recent years, and with it’s latest project, it wants to open members to working — well, anywhere.
For the new offering, aptly named Common Desk-Anywhere, the company transformed a vintage 1972 Airstream into a small office space that can travel throughout the city. It’s part of the company’s mission to enhance collaboration and productivity outside the confines of an office building.
“… we want to provide a simple and seamless avenue for our members to make their workdays more memorable, both in the office and out of the office.”
Common Desk unveiled the portable workspace last week during Dallas Startup Week. Features include Wi-Fi, rearrangeable conference tables, a TV for presentations, mini bar, and refrigerator.
The Airstream can be rented for about $1,500 a day. The fee covers transportation, setup, beverages (Fiction Coffee and water), and rental.
“With so many professionals having the ability to work wherever they want, we want to provide a simple and seamless avenue for our members to make their workdays more memorable, both in the office and out of the office,” said Common Desk CEO Nick Clark in a statement.
In line with this work anywhere spirit, Common Desk plans to take 30 of its members on a five-day trip to a tropical location this fall. Once they reach the destination, members can work on the beach, surf, and enjoy happy hours. Eventually, Common Desk plans to offer four of these workstation excursion trips a year.
Common Desk currently has four coworking spaces located in Deep Ellum, Oak Cliff, Fort Worth, Plano.
