• Work to go at ORGATEC 2018

        • Under the title ‘work to go’, students have developed their visions for the future of modern working environments, leading to new perspectives on how we can or must organise our working environments in the future. The results can be seen in their entirety in the special exhibition at ORGATEC 2018.

          The students at the AMD Academy of Fashion & Design in Hamburg have developed their visions for the future as part of a joint initiative with the architecture magazine AIT and the firm brandherm + krumrey interior architecture.

          The ‘work to go’ stand concept gives trade visitors exciting perspectives on location-independent working from the younger generation’s point of view. On all days of the trade fair, there will also be a programme of events and education opportunities with guided tours, workshops, headline talks, keynote lectures and panel discussions. The programme is aimed at all visitors to ORGATEC and at interior designers/architects, planners and experts from the world of work in particular. 

          For the students, it was important for their involvement to create an interface between today’s reality and future requirements for modern working environments. They believe that ‘work to go’ is a step into the future. A future in which work no longer defines our everyday life, but instead our everyday life defines our work.

          With the competitive market for young and qualified employees in mind, the special exhibition offers HR managers and company decision makers a unique opportunity to find out what requirements tomorrow’s employees will have for modern workplaces. Combining work and private life, being flexible and free, working independently within existing work structures, ensuring tolerant and open working methods, creativity, fun and well-being at work, the relaxation of fixed structures and interconnected work within the various hierarchies and disciplines are just some of the demands that the younger generation is making on future employers.

          Global competition and the digital revolution present companies with new challenges on an almost daily basis. Within the scope of this project, several well-known businesses are focusing on the future of work and have set themselves the goal of using their extensive knowledge and the resulting products, applications and services to support customers all over the world as they head into this future. In addition to students from Hamburg, a total of eight partners from various industries are involved in the project initiated and devised by AIT-Dialog, the AMD and brandherm + krumrey interior architecture.
