Fast Forward

In another 10 years, your current office will seem as quaint as a rotary phone on the kitchen wall. By carefully analyzing the signals of change that surround us today, Steelcase researchers formulated seven fascinating scenarios for how and where work might occur just one decade from today. Thrilling or sobering, they’re sure to stimulate a point of view about a future that will be very different from what we’re experiencing today.
