returning to orgatec 2018 to further their ideas on the future of work, VITRA debuts the ‘soft work’ sofa system by barber & osgerby. it explores how hotel lobbies, cafes, airports and even parks are becoming areas of work, whilst, in reverse, offices are becoming more public. with employees not tied to specific locations as much before, places and objects that were once considered as unsuitable workstations are now the preferred choice. and the ‘soft work’ sofa exemplifies this radical transition away from the desk archetype.

The Shoreditch Design Triangle is a loose association of shops, exhibitions and showrooms, united by little more than geography, but it always serves up something wonderful, and often something pretty weird too. Starting with the latter, London-based Mexican designer Fernando Laposse transformed the entrance to CitizenM’s Shoreditch hotel into Sisal Sanctum – an outdoor seating area protected by pretty gloomy looking “giant guardians” – all entirely made out of sisal, a natural fiber harvested from a species of Agave cactus found in the South of Mexico.

If you’re looking for a more unique place to lay your head on your next trip to London, look no further than the Boathouse London, a stylish floating hotel docked on a city canal.

Kitted out in Scandinavian-inspired style, the chic getaway comes with customizable experiences, from a boat driver who can steer you around the canals to a special dinner prepared by a local chef.

Often times during vacations and sabbaticals we feel this compulsive itch to keep working, which is why Amble's business model is so intriguing. The new program is offering designers the chance to lodge in cozy properties otherwise not available to the public, in exchange for the completion of a design project. Amble partners with nonprofits, conservancies, and small towns to provide the design briefs as well as discounted lodging in return. The program recently launched online with a pilot program happening this November in Yosemite National Park.

hostels are all the rage these days, especially as travel continues to be reconsidered. beijing-based architect cao pu is no stranger to hostel design, having completed several accommodation spaces already. his latest project — together · venue fawn hostel in suzhou, china — is a fascinating play of public and private space. it was designed out of an old structure of a department store named beiding, which was very popular in the 70s and 80s and bears a long history of business. cao pu and his team spent a great deal of time studying the city environment and contemplating a plan that would suit the needs of a hostel, while giving something back to the community as well.

AQSO arquitectos’ ‘shoreditch hotel‘ is located on the iconic landmark intersection of old street and great eastern street in east london. the ancient roman street widens on the western side after crossing what is being called the silicon roundabout, the intersection of city road, and opens the doors of shoreditch at haggerston. this junction is not only significant from the morphology of the urban fabric but also for becoming a regeneration catalyst in this old industrial area influenced by the city of london that has experienced an important creative and artistic boom.
