Is the Cubicle Really Dissapering?

With another NeoCon in the rearview mirror, it’s time to reflect on what the show tells us about the state of our industry. As technology untethers us from a set work location, in recent years we have seen a great shift in the allocation of floor space. New types of collaboration spaces and individual work spaces are emerging that account for a much larger portion of the overall square footage, and furniture spend. With 2016 perhaps marks the first year since the advent of systems furniture, it was difficult to find a cubicle in the Mart. But don’t be fooled. The cubicle has not yet disappeared. In many jobs, systems furniture still is a major component; at least for now. What we can read from this trend is an audible shift in the industry that gives us a glimpse of what may be to come.
