Workplaces of the Future
" In the history of office interiors, there is a ‘before’ Google and an ‘after’ Google. Before, anyone working in an open space, with a Mac on the desk and a decent canteen could easily have been believed to be working in a cool company.
Do all entrepreneurs need to create a playground, then, in order to make their employees happy (and performing)? “No,” says Matthre Kobylar, Workplace Strategist of American interior giant Gensler. According to Kobylar, who has recently finalised a study on the productivity of US workers, the greatest myth is in regard to open space. “It definitely does not foster creativity and the exchange of ideas. Open spaces are noisy and stressful.”
Architect Jean Nouvel, who presented an office of the future concept at the last Salone in Milan, agrees. “Generic solutions, like the traditional open space, are old-fashioned: a good office should feel like a home.”
Together with interiors, architecture is also changing, starting with the most visionary office buildings of the moment. Norman Foster’s new Apple campus in Cupertino and Frank O Gehry’s Facebook headquarters in San Francisco will not be the skyscrapers that one might have expected a while back. Rather, they are horizontal entities that are difficult to describe using traditional geometries.
So an office that looks and feels like home in an architecture that is unobtrusive is the recipe for working environments of the future. "
