How do you design an office for office-less freelancers?
Flexibility, managing multiple clients, streamlining workflow and mobile working space are all challenges that call for efficiency, creativity and focus. Maybe it means designing an alternative to the local coffee shop setup, or a desk designed to be easily transportable. Perhaps it's furniture that eliminates any possibility of distraction, no matter where you are.
For our 1-Hour Design Challenge, we're asking Core77 readers to design a piece of furniture or object for freelancers that enables the 'new normal' for work.
With NeoCon right around the corner, this is a perfect time to rethink office furniture for the office-less freelancer. How can design enable a freelancer to live the digital nomad lifestyle surrounded by ritualistic comforts? What are common work space frustrations of freelancers and what could you design to make it better?
In the future, some speculate there will be no work left to be done by humans (thanks robots). Until then, you have the chance to rectify all the issues that come with freelance life—so get to it!
