In an era in which in-office work is increasingly shadowed by the attractiveness of remote working, the sharing, experience and serendipity typical of human interaction fortunately appear still to be intact.

According to a recent study carried out in the United States, more than 94% of workers consider connection with their colleagues and the workplace fundamental.

However, while on the one hand, there is a still strongly felt “physical” aspect, on the other, more than 3.6 million workers in Italy alone are willing to fully embrace remote working.

As a result, the office is destined to change, developing into a more modular, adaptable and customisable form. In this light, there is an increasing number of open solutions that offer private spaces, allowing people to concentrate and work at full capacity. Then there are modular spaces that are suited to accommodating a range of situations and needs with an “easy office” concept that breaks traditional moulds and envisages an increasingly agile working model.

This is a new approach. A collection of unconventional solutions that focus on “freedom” of layout, with a marked focus on the needs of people.

Planners, architects and designers are ever increasingly adopting a global approach to office design. This will allow them to respond in a more practical manner to company demands, to the varying working dynamics and to the diverse forms that the office can assume in response to an increasingly diverse workforce.
