From the designer:
The boundary between living and working in a home office are often blurred. Home office user often find themselves working non stop. Their work and family life often cross over as working and living are under the same roof. Buro re-creates a boundary by using the simple gesture of opening the cover. Opening it indicates the notion to start working and once finish work, the work and clutter are hidden away by closing the cover. Without the work in view, user’s mind can comfortably ease back to the relaxed “home” state.
