While everyone is frightened by the corona virus situation and seems immobilized, someone is moving against the current. Alessia Garibaldi, ex partner of DC10, announces that there are news conceived during the lockdown: Garibaldi Architects was born, a new design brand focused on custom made.
We have historically dealt with design for the office, in particular we had started a project in Bologna, which is still ongoing, with interior design solutions based on technological innovation that anticipate trends will soon emerging because this phase of health emergency produced an acceleration.
We designed sit-stand desks equipped with sophisticated sensors for detecting presence, configurable and remotely bookable. This kind of intelligence in the workplace will have more and more importance: offering safe spaces will be a must.
The workplace must be rethought in terms of space and size. The office spaces will perhaps have the same dimensions, but a lower turnout of people and different ways of meeting.
There will be communities, but we will work from home, too; because we have discovered some positive aspects of home working.
Biophilia, natural light wellness, ergonomics will have even more value in the workplace and we will also bring them to our homes.
At first the house contaminated the office, now the office will enter the house, the boundaries are increasingly fluid and dynamic.
Light, dynamic furnishings will be needed that allow you to easily reconfigure the environment.
