A plan to escape the open plan

CONTRIBUTORS

OBJECTS • Technology gets INTUITIVE. Architecture goes OPEN-SOURCE. The true costs of DESIGN LABOUR emerge. Can DIGITAL CLOTHING save the planet? Is HYPER-CUSTOMIZATION going too far? Discover new directions in the world of products.

The DIGITAL SHOWROOM tackles overconsumption

Frame and Sonos ask whether HOME IS WHERE THE SOUND IS

Why city-dwelling bees need STREET FURNITURE

CUSTOMIZED PRODUCTS lend shape to the idiom ‘time is money’

How INTUITIVE DESIGN lightens our lives

DIY architecture: this OPEN-SOURCE CONSTRUCTION system democratises design

High design helps SELL SUSTAINABILITY

Can hyper-customizing products cause us to lose sight of their COMMUNAL FUNCTION?

JUMP INTO THE FUTURE • How to make tomorrow’s bathrooms more sustainable? It’s the challenge posed by ROCA’s international design competition.

THE CHALLENGE OPEN PLAN 2.0 • In the lead-up to each issue, Frame challenges emerging designers to answer a topical question with a future-forward concept. Recent studies by Harvard and the Auckland University of Technology undermine the open-plan office. Once championed as a facilitator of collaboration among employees, an unstructured environment has the opposite effect, according to experts who claim that open-plan workplaces impede interaction and lower productivity. Resurrecting the cubicle certainly can’t be the answer, so what are the alternatives? We asked five makers to share their ideas.

Raise the Curtain • Victor Moynier rejects the one-size-fits-all office in favour of a more ADAPTIVE LAYOUT.

On a Roll • Replacing set desks with MOVABLE HUTS, Amy Shao lets office staff work wherever they want.

Working Holiday • Catering for today’s always-on lifestyles, Tomas Dirrix envisions a RESORT FOR PRODUCTIVITY rather than relaxation.

Screen Play • As office environments become more lively and customizable, Eli Block believes our HARDWARE should follow suit.

In the Best Light • Inspired by selfie culture and TV newscasts, Kohei Kojima comes up with a MOBILE TOOLKIT for video conferencing.

PORTRAITS • PAOLA NAVONE imagines an object-free future. ALBERTO CAIOLA stirs up Asian fusion. ALICJA KWADE masters the art of illusion. DONG-PING WONG wins with weirdness. Meet the people. Get their perspectives.

‘Good design starts a conversation’ • Perpetual traveller PAOLA NAVONE contemplates fun, frittatas and an object-free future.

OFFICE COMMUNITIES • KARI PEI champions the importance of the floor as a blank canvas for designers who want to give the workplace a neighbourhood feel.

New-Wave Space • Influenced by contradictions in the life of Shanghai, Italian creative ALBERTO CAIOLA incorporates ideas of past and future into hybrid designs.

Better Together • From overview Mondays to junk-food Fridays, Oskar Peet and Sophie Mensen of OS ∆ OOS maintain a balance between work and private life.

A-List Architect • DONG-PING WONG says the creation of ‘unfamiliar environments’ for the likes of Kanye West and Virgil Abloh shaped the ethos of his solo venture Food.

Now You See It • With boulders and tree trunks as her subjects and mirrors as her tool, ALICJA KWADE manipulates our perception of time and space.

SPACE • DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT replaces...
