Working Worlds 2030

Our working world is under­going a dramatic change. Here, drivers are, among others, techno­lo­gical develo­pment and social change. In various projects, future_bizz has dealt with this develo­pment and created images of the workplace of the future.

The project “Working Worlds 2030” identified impulses for the develo­pment of innovative business ideas and the creation of future jobs. In this context, we consi­dered new types of organiz­ation and work equipment, interior design objects, recom­men­da­tions on interior design and room acoustics, as weell as instru­ments for commu­ni­cation and coöpe­ration.

The basis for this was the studies “Scenario Future Living 2030”, “Working Worlds 2030” and “Struc­tures and Processes of the Future Working Life”, which provide an extensive knowledge base for the creation of future images of working condi­tions, tasks and roles of the employees.

Here, the pivotal questions were:

  • What are the main drivers of job change?
  • How do these changes affect corporate struc­tures and relati­onships between companies?
  • What will work look like in the future?

What oppor­tu­nities for innovative products and services can be developed from these insights? What risks can be identified in relation to the current product and service portfolios or business models of the project partners?

Orgatec 2012

Under the motto:

“Future | Work | Room — 2030: New Perspec­tives for the Working World of Tomorrow”

future_bizz presented itself at an own booth at ORGATEC 2012

Basis was a compre­hensive knowledge base prepared in advance in coöpe­ration with members of our network inclusing Bayer Materi­al­Sciene, Durable, Hettich and REHAU as well as the project partners Tieto and Lista Office LO. Based on this, students of the University of Applied Sciences Ostwest­falen-Lippe and the University of Darmstadt had developed creative answers and solutions on the matter.

At the exhibition, we showcased a multitude of visua­lized designs in the form of proto­types, concept studies or other presen­tation media. In doing so, we made infor­mation on insights, facts, emotional backgrounds behind the exhibited solutions come alive.
