Office Remix

Have you noticed? Many of today’s offices look more like a trendy café, a homey den or a playground than a place where work happens. Whether described as “resimercial,” “ancillary” or “anti-corporate,” informal shared spaces are the latest way organizations are trying to woo talent. Yet, despite their investments, many of these spaces often sit empty.

New Work. New Rules.

Have you noticed? Familiar patterns of office work are being upended as the race toward innovation intensifies. In organizations around the world, most of our work is now matrixed, project based and hyper-collaborative. It’s a fast-paced, active collision of ideas versus an orderly, linear sequence of individual contributions, more like a soccer game than a relay race.

The office you remember is gone. Imagine in its place a workplace in harmony with the new ways in which you work. An agile space of rich colors and textures. An immersive landscape where artificial intelligence and virtual reality come together to help you solve complex problems. A place where you move to intuitive workspaces, connected conference rooms, comfortable lounges. Each day’s demands are different, and you wake up excited to meet them.

The Office Renaissance

For years, many have predicted the death of the office. Mobile technology allows us to work anywhere, so why do you need an office at all? Yet as the world becomes more complex, the places we work have never been more relevant. Work is a social activity and people need places to come together to solve problems. The office isn’t going away—it’s in the midst of a renaissance, where workplaces are becoming something fundamentally different.

Think Better

In workplaces throughout the world, scenarios of near-constant distraction have become the norm. Thankfully, our ability to focus is still salvageable. As a result of the vast amount of neuroscience research being done, there’s now hard evidence about what attention is, how it works, how to attain it and how to use it productively. By delving into the findings, Steelcase researchers have gained new insights into how our brains shape thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and then applied this new science to create concepts for how thoughtfully designed workplaces can help workers better manage their attention and think better at work.
