The history of home and the office

An excellent piece in the Financial Times by Edwin Heathcote ('Office scenes of domesticity mask a few home truths') takes a swift look at the historical relationship between office and home.  Here's a snippet, talking about the effects of the pandemic: 

The boundary that might once have delineated home and work dissolved. And the strange thing about this is that it represents the exact opposite of what had been happening over the past couple of decades as the office attempted to convince us to hang around for longer, to chill, but to keep working, to treat it as a second home (one supercool co-working ­outfit adopted precisely that name).

Well worth a read.
