An outdoor office startup
Posted in: Future of the office, Physical office, Worker wellbeing
WHAT: ‘The bug’ is a new chair design that allows people to work outside comfortably in the summer, with a built-in desk and shade from the sun so people can still see their laptop screens. The inventors of the chair are now working on the development of new outdoor office spaces.
SO WHAT: This innovation emphasises the changing nature of the workplace, and the new focus on working in natural places, rather than being locked inside. There is growing interest in being able to work wherever is best for productivity, and this is an extra sign that classic office designs are no longer what employees look for.
