stockholm furniture & light fair – feb 4–8, 2020 Exhibition:
the office. The
HAS THERE BEEN a paradigm shift in the
notion of what work is? One where we have
moved on from seeing work as a place we go
to, and instead consider it an activity where
the workplace could just as well be a tree
stump in a forest, a boat on the middle of
the Atlantic Ocean or even a virtual space?
The (human centred) post-spatial workspace
aims to discuss and illuminate issues
connected to the experience of working.
The Cloud is the key to present and future
working practices as it connects everyone
and everything, yet at the same time it creates
distance. Thus, the exhibition scrutinizes
issues such as the need for physical meetings,
designed environments and human connection
in the digital age. It raises awareness
of integrity, wellbeing and community in
connection to work, as it discusses a vision
or a speculation about what the future of
work might look like based on the principles
of place, technology and sustainability.
