Is office-life as we know it gone for good? Design and technology will play a huge role in shaping our future work culture since post-pandemic workspaces are changing layouts and the workforce is expected to adapt its behaviours.

Remote working is here to stay, but human presence is still needed in order to stimulate creativity and interaction among employees. However, new technologies might allow us to be there while our bodies are actually at home. Hot-desking and data gathering (IoT) can help offices develop safe procedures and schedules. An efficient office is a flexible one in which employees can personalize their work experience, being able to manage their home life while remaining connected with their coworkers. 

We are searching for a wider understanding of the limitations we are living by and how creatives and innovators are approaching these boundaries. During these uncertain times, our research has given us great insight into a bigger perspective on workspaces today and what is being envisioned for the workspace of tomorrow
