The future of the office

Allison Arieff has some interesting things to say about the future of workplaces at in her piece 'Cubicle Couches and Other Hot Trends in Workplace Design'. She looks particularly at videoconferencing (using for example this sheddish design pictured by Steelcase), but also desks, chairs and tables. What's missing of course is any kind of analysis of the home workplace - she even says "Not long ago, many predicted the office of the future was no office at all. Today, the thinking is to get employees back to the office and find all sorts of enticements to keep them there"... - and for a good critique of her argument, have a look at Lloyd Alter's piece on who sees texting as far more important. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. I still prefer having the best computer chair for home office. I don’t like to sit in a couch because my style is oldschool.
