From “smart home” to “smart office”, the Internet of Things is shaping how we work and how we design for work. As workplace designers concerned with space optimization and worker satisfaction, gathering and analyzing data is a must. Understanding how often individuals use a space, feel in a room, occupy a chair, or reserve a conference room, can help us better design an office that works for them.
The new technology-driven, multigenerational workforce is shaping workplace design and fundamentally the way we work. From the speed in which we communicate to our plugged-in life and work styles.
Tethered-free, automated offices are becoming the norm. From company-wide wifi, to automated lighting and mobile charging stations, digital technology is at the forefront of workplace design.
