• About Us

    “Don’t undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.”

    Edwin Land

    At OpenSpace, we are passionate (can you tell?) about reinventing how people work and collaborate.

    An affordable, simple to use workspace, OpenSpace is geared to how we communicate and interact in today’s connected world. In an age when too many of us rely on noisy coffee shops, dreary home offices, and soulless rent-a-room centers to accommodate our work lives, OpenSpace provides a meaningful alternative.

    Our founder, Jeff Gunther, is an entrepreneur with several technology-oriented start ups under his belt. His experience with costly, inflexible, traditional office space led him to conclude that there must be a better way. The result: OpenSpace.
