With the mobile, always-connected professional becoming the norm, high-end hotels like The James in New York are adapting a different philosophy when it comes to hotel spaces. What used to be a boring desks with a chair is now an array of different layout styles, catered individually to specific types of work.1. The Doubles: For those who go on business trips in pairs, long desks with huge screen estate caters to the working professional who needs plenty of room to work in a collaborative space.
2. The Nighthawk: Circular desks and comfortable mini-sofas create a sophisticated space for those who tend to work long into the night. With well-placed lighting and numerous alternative seating positions available, the "Nighthawk" can get his/her work done without feeling like a robot hammering away at a desk.
3. The Dweller: Those who work from home need a space that reminds them of their residence in order to get the work done. By using a comforting color palette, a huge open space, and plenty of relaxing amenities, a separate universe reminiscent of home can be created.
Although this shifting trend may just mean pricier hotels, it's also a good way to draw inspiration and apply ideas to your own space in order to achieve the ultimate workspace.
What's your workspace style? Got a name for it?
