Overview

In the past, work has shaped the way we live. In the near future, the way we live may shape the way we work. Workspheres creatively confronts the design demands of the ever-evolving contemporary work environment. Featuring design products, prototypes, and models, and part of a groundbreaking 2001 exhibition held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, this exciting book introduces work concepts originated by internationally recognized designers who address the unique needs of specific work scenarios, including the nomadic office of a business traveler; the domestic office; the virtual office; and more traditional offices in settings configured for group interaction. Featuring projects commissioned especially for Workspheres by such avant-garde brainstormers as LOT/EK, Digital Image Design, and Hella Jongerius, interviews with designers extraordinaire Bruce Mau, Michael Brill, and Francis Duffy, and more pictures of chairs, cubicles, and desks that you've ever imagined, even in your most compulsive catalogue fantasies, Workspheres is the ultimate consideration of contemporary work space.
