I don’t know about you, but I find this to be incredible intriguing. I am not ready to say yet whether I think it would actually work, but it is certainly thought-provoking and a great topic for this week’s “Thought-Provoking Thursday.”
Forget standing desks. In the office of the future, you might lean instead—supported by giant rock-like sculptures that designers argue are a healthier, more active way to work than anything that’s come before. A prototype of the office design is now on display in Amsterdam.
Fast Company has a brief writeup on it at their FastCoExist site. They mention a few important points. First, it is a conceptual design – they don’t expect anything quite like this hitting the marketplace any time soon. They also note that the idea is undergoing some testing at the University of Groningen, so that is a good sign. But I could see some startups adopting the idea just to evoke some extra creative juices among employees. Or just to impress venture capitalists when they come through for a tour.
I am just going to jump right to the Your Turn section here. I am really interested in to hear what folks with real HF/E experience have to say. What are your initial thoughts on the concept?
