As the coronavirus pandemic took hold across the world, our homes became workplaces almost overnight. The working from home revolution looks set to stay with offices becoming hubs for face-to-face collaboration when we finally emerge into the ‘new normal’. But our impromptu pop-up work spaces need to be adapted in order to be fit for purpose. The new trend report, The Future of the Home, produced by Aritco and Springwise, uncovers the latest innovations that will transform our home offices into havens of safety, productivity and professionalism.
With hygiene high on the agenda, the report looks to the healthcare sector for lightweight, modular, self-cleaning antimicrobial room dividers made from sustainable materials to create flexible workspaces at home. The Future of the Home also unveils a customisable furniture kit that creates a work-appropriate aesthetic with presentation stands, storage cabinets that double as display boards and an adjustable desk on wheels for standing presentations. A digital studio that can create compelling video presentations with virtual backgrounds and synchronised video streaming adds fun and professional polish to remote meetings.
