The Future Workplace Imagined as a Resort of Unshackled Creativity
Architecture students envision offices that boast Netflix lounges and isolation pods
Norwegian furniture brand HAG recently commissioned a pool of London youth, aged 16-18, to depict the future of the workplace as it pertains to their likes and interests. Spearheaded by Open-City, London’s leading architecture education organization, the project looks to pinpoint the values of near-future workers.
Delving into a millennial’s mind yields ‘isolation pods’ perfect for tuning out noise and distractions, interactive tablet desks doubling as beds, virtual reality rooms and communal allotments which provide organic lunchtime ingredients. By these means, a prioritization on health, environment, technology and workspace will be ever present in the next-gen workforce.
