where people work.
our alliance will form a broader investigation into new ways of working – from modular office furniture systems to communal, open concept workspaces. we will publish a series of articles in which we will feature interviews with the design industry’s key players and office experts on how the landscape and function of the workplace has and continues to evolve in relation to our changing behavioral, societal and technological needs.

 

new ways of working.

we will bring you a new and refreshed perspective of the workplace through studio visits and case studies, artistic interventions and experimental happenings — offering an in-depth look into the way it has progressed from something static, into a dynamic territory that encompasses a multitude of elements that are no longer defined.

 

to read all related articles, we invite you to choose from the TOP menu the designboom section — WORK.
please stay tuned, we’ll feed this section with fresh news and update the research info continuously. artistic interventions and entertaining curiosity is part of our investigation.
