A multi-phase research project at the Ars Electronica Center’s FutureLab was developing prototype components for telematic everyday life in the office of the future. The team’s primary objective here was to integrate existing functional technologies into ergonomic and stylishly designed scenarios. Custom-designed objects and furniture contributed to evaluate the suitability of conventional concepts and visions and offered visitors a demonstration of current possibilities.
