We often discuss the evolution of the office and what impact this has on you, the quality of the work you crank out, and possibly your sanity. And you all are more than happy to complain about open, collaborative workspaces.
But we have to admit, this is the first we've seen an office like this.
Forget standing desks. In the office of the future, you might lean instead—supported by giant rock-like sculptures that designers argue are a healthier, more active way to work than anything that's come before. A prototype of the office design is now on display in Amsterdam.
"We said, what if we could create a work environment which is not based on tables and chairs anymore?" says Ronald Rietveld, one of the founders of RAAAF, a Dutch design firm that worked on the project with artist Barbara Visser. "We wanted to create not just furniture, but new ways of working actively on the scale of the whole working environment."
Yeah, man, screw chairs! Chairs are for losers!
What does this office of the future look like? I'm glad you asked.
What do we make of this?
