The Evolution of the Modern Office

Office Design of the Future

The office design press is full of ‘office of the future’ stories, and many express the idea that quirky design and laddish (not to say childish) recreational spaces are the way to go, so as to reduce the differential between work spaces and home and recreational spaces.
