Out Now: Frame 123 – Work. Wherever

AMSTERDAM – The Jul/Aug issue of Frame magazine explores how the notion of the workspace is changing as offices expand their amenities exponentially. Co-working space Tenoha offers a multi-service programme in Milan, NapYork provides New York City professionals with facilities for micro-rest, while Universal Design Studio and The Office Group reach a new level of integration between work and hospitality in London.

Objects
Designers rethink joints. 3D printing gets closer to home. What does blockchain technology mean for design? Discover new directions in the world of products.

The Challenge: The Future of Retail
In the lead-up to each issue, Frame challenges emerging designers to answer a topical question with a future-forward concept. As more and more purchases happen online, physical shops need to attract clients with extra experiences and services. The power of personal contact remains a drawing card, though: a PWC survey reported that 78 per cent of customers feel that sales associates with a deep knowledge of a product range are the most important reason for visiting a bricks-and-mortar store. How will we shop in the future? We commissioned five makers to share their ideas.

Portraits

Spaces
The Frame Awards head to Milan. Krause Architects formulates the first 3D-printed store. Selfridges speculates on the future of luxury. Step inside the great indoors.

Work Lab
From co-working spaces to campuses and cafés – the workplace typology seems wider than ever. As the genre broadens, we see an exponential growth in the services on offer. Work, play and rest converge. Offices double as hotels, fitness clubs and restaurants. With hospitality at the forefront, the latest workplaces are where people not only need to be, but where they want to be. Functioning as microcosmic cities, they forge a sense of community.

Reports: Lighting
Luminaires double as sound absorbers. Smart lighting enters the home. LEDs advance to the next level. Discover what’s driving the business of design.
