Why Talky? An idea is born.

When Zurich architect and designer Stephan Hürlemann designed a company headquarters with a dynamic working environment in 2017, he was missing a multifunctional and flexible phonebooth for his “Dancing Office” product family. It had to be mobile, with perfect climate inside and multifunctional against the outside. That was the birth of Talky. Erich Keller recognized the need and decided to produce the best phonebooth for open space. Together with Hürlemann, the joinery developed the Talky product family, which was launched in 2021.
