Linked, mobile, informal: The working environment
is in the midst of a radical transformation process.
As part of the New Work Order study for ophelis,
the Trendbüro consultancy in Hamburg has com­
piled the main trends that will influence tomorrow‘s
working world. This change in the working envi­
ronment is already noticeable and will continue to
increase, as it impacts all kinds of areas including
our forms of communication, leadership styles
and new working models adapted to the various
life stages.
“The current transition from an industrial to a net­work economy requires nothing less from
businesses than a full reorganisation,” says Birgit
Gebhardt, trend expert.

ophelis has intensively examined this transforma­
tion process and sought for answers to the spatial
challenges by exploring new working structures.
One answer is ophelis docks. docks stands for
the new office generation. Designed as a modular
furniture system, it creates new zones in the office
which provide a common space for work, com­
munication and quiet contemplation and give the
working environment a more attractive design.
