October 2021 Luncheon: “The Future of Workspaces in a Post-Pandemic World”

The pandemic has taught us that work can be done in more fluid and flexible ways than imagined, giving us a chance to re-evaluate our work life. Now companies are looking for guidance on how to adapt to the new working mode in a post-pandemic world. No matter where a company decides to position itself in the spectrum between co-location in a common office to fully distributed work: experience and research show that the communication paths and processes, the rules of collaboration, and also our workspaces need to be significantly adjusted. How do our future workspaces look like at home & office, or even on the go?

In his presentation for the SCCIJ, Mr. Kataigi will share the experience of Vitra implementing hybrid work model and introduce their new workspace called ”Club office”.
