In today’s reality, work can happen anywhere, anytime. The impact on the design of offices, homes and third places is huge. How can employers attract and retain talent, empower people to work more effectively, inspire creativity and foster collaboration? How can design and technology shape amazing, truly inclusive experiences? These questions will be addressed by the third edition of The Next Space, taking place on 26 October at Orgatec, Cologne. Together with IBA an interactive event with talks, workshops and guided tours will investigate the future of work from every angle.
