How do jobs look like tomorrow?

Overview

At Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® For example, we have dedicated our own topic to the subject of workplace design, in which we regularly present unusual design ideas - for example, the crazy idea of ​​simulating rooms with windows in underground offices, but with simulated daylight lamps, a horror idea for me personally.

I like the mobile office landscape of the Dutch design studio RAAF and the artist Barbara Visser. In this model of the future the office workers can stand, lean somewhere or even lie - but seldom sit. The design guarantees that you always keep moving.

Create flexible workplaces

Overview

Great idea, unfortunately, it will take a while until this has been fully implemented. Who can be, for example because Company offers flexible workplaces and home office, which should be active even in the design of a flexible workplace.

2006 already had its first beginnings as Sascha Lobo and Holm Friebe suddenly made Digital Boheme famous as a way of life and work - and St. Oberholz in Berlin was one of them.

Work where you want?

Overview

Now I have to say that in my almost 5 years in Berlin I could never really do anything with Oberholz. Too crowded, too loud, too much distraction. And coworking spaces have never personally convinced me - at least not permanently.

Nevertheless, I am convinced by the idea of ​​mobile workplace design. I actually work best in the home office, especially when I need to concentrate very much. But again and again it happens that I also want to get out: in cafe or work outside.

Cafe, Coworking Space, Home Office or Train?

Overview

Also, some coworking spaces now offer models in which you can rent a work space for a few euros per hour. This is very much for me, because I really do not like to work all day in one place.

At present, it is natural that I work at home in the morning and then in another place at noon - for inspiration and creativity or simply to see something different. But I have also read from people who have been driving the whole day with a Bahncard 100 - and apart from the wireless problem, I also like to work there.

Mixed office as a model of the future

Overview

Lars Hahn has coined the term Mixed Office in his blog Systematically Drinking Coffee. With his photo, on which he quickly turned a backstage area into a mobile workstation, he shows very well how mobile work can be today - if not always ideally back-friendly.

On The Worker, there are other articles on the subject. I find the model of the mixed office extremely useful for knowledge workers. However, now the companies, some of which have proudly announced the home office, are still forced to move here.

The future of work: Underground and with daylight?

Overview

But maybe the future of work looks very different too - and takes place in the basement without any natural light. Somehow depressing as a concept.

"We have just moved into a new building and are bursting at the seams again" - such and similar lawsuits may soon be a thing of the past. For overcrowded offices, companies can now avoid - and indeed in the basement.


Cellar children at the desk

Overview

Downstairs sitting in the basement without daylight, while the bosses are usually reserved the upper floors, sounds terrible. But now, as Wired reports, there is an alternative:

The Italian company CoeLux has developed a lamp which not only imitates the blue of the sky in the window, but also the brightness and warmth of the real sun.

The 3 component solution

Overview

This is what Wired says:

The illusion of natural light arises from three components: LEDs imitate the spectrum of sunlight, an optical system deceives the distance from the sky and the sun, and materials with nanostructures, which are only a few millimeters thick, reduce the Rayleight scatter.

Exciting and terrifying at the same time

Overview

This sounds exciting on the one hand and in the video it looks really good and deceptively real. On the other hand, I am frightened by this possibility.

Wired compares the lamp with the invention of the elevator, which made skyscrapers possible. Now, according to author Juliane Liebert, CoeLux creates the opportunity to "grow" houses and thus also office space underground.

Offices of the future: skyscrapers under the earth?

Overview

I am now trying to imagine what consequences this might have on our work. Will we be sitting in the underground all the time because it is cheaper?

Personally, I find my top floor office facing the real sky is still more inspiring.

Regardless of time and space

Overview

And even more: such a lamp could make us not only spatially independent of daylight, but also temporally:

Industrialization was only made possible by the invention of electrical light and thus the relative independence from the brightness.

Shift work as a future vision?

Overview

The CoeLux could also make shift work more attractive for office workers around the clock. It will be interesting to see how things develop.

It's a cool design idea, but when you think through the possibilities, it quickly becomes clear that not all developments need to be positive. I'm curious - and you?
