More companies are introducing telework amid the coronavirus outbreak and as part of work-style reforms, but not everybody is finding their home or, for instance, a nearby cafe to be a comfortable workplace.

For some, home is not always an ideal place to concentrate with other family members present, while cafes tend to be a problem when one wants to make a confidential phone call.

Some companies see a lucrative business opportunity, offering cubicles that can be placed at offices and train stations so that workers can concentrate without outside distraction or fear of being overheard. Others are matchmaking rental space operators and teleworkers who need a quiet place to work.
