No matter where the trend goes in the future, the notion of a more open office and collaborative spaces is sure to stick around for a while. The reasons are real estate prices and new tech enabling. But also a preference in workers where working from home is seen as comfortable and even more productive.
The open, free-seated office trend is already implemented to a huge degree, so the next logical step is to synchronize your desk and spaces just like you do meeting rooms. The risk is obviously that workers spend uncesseracy time trying to find available desks that they could spend on working.
