Flexibility and office furniture

Written in


From Domus mail:

“One concept pops up again and again in office furniture catalogues. Flexibility. This means the ability of any product typology to face up to the sweeping transformations that have been assailing the world of desks and computers for no more than the past few decades. Specialization, pushed into overdrive, spins out of control and burns itself out. What is needed is simplicity – of both structures and functions – to keep them from being displaced every time technology takes a step forward.”
