The future workplace caters to collaboration while providing individual control of the personal space. The individual space needs to be functional, productive, comfortable, healthy, customizable, and sustainable. This individual space also needs to structure an environment that will foster the generation and development of ideas born from many. Creativity is not bound to the confines of a desk in the same way that communication is not limited to the formality of the conference table. We are proposing a future that encourages workers to investigate their ideas free from the rigid boundaries of a traditional office.
We developed five components that were essential to the future. These components include a Hub, a Cartridge, a Chair with built-in environmental controls, a Modular Kitchen to provide storage and dining space, and a Modular Partition to improve interior environmental qualities. The composition of these components is flexible.
