Biura się zmieniają, ale biurka zostaną na dłużej

Offices are changing, but desks are here to stay

What will the future bring?

If you ask ten people of different ages what they think should be in an office, most of them will probably answer: a desk. Surprisingly, many futurologists consider the desk an "endangered species." For them, the future of work looks completely different: it means relaxing on the sofa, talking with colleagues on a raised chair placed in the middle of the conference room, or brainstorming while walking in the garden next to the company building. It's a brave new world. Who wouldn't want to work this way?

However, I must reveal a secret: I am writing this text on my laptop, sitting at my desk in my office. Yes, it's very old-fashioned. At this point, I can confidently say that as long as people have something to write about, they will continue to work at their desks - for many years to come. Writing on the couch works for me only in exceptional cases.

Even if workers in modern offices sit in adjustable chairs or visit gardens regularly, they will return to a desk at some point in their workday, at least temporarily. But they can also choose to work at a standing desk. And so, after this somewhat provocative introduction, we come to the heart of the matter: the desk has evolved over time - and so has the way we use it. Not only the appearance of the desk has changed, but also its functions. Thanks to technical innovations, it has been adapted to the way we work. We believe that in the animal kingdom, the ability to adapt has and will ensure survival.

In recent years, the way we work has changed dramatically...
