Inviting you to the think tank called PIN Board!

PINBoard invitation to participate indiaartndesign

Present-day workspaces are witnessing a transformation like never before. The research initiative PIN Board invites your valued inputs to explore, debate, and perhaps consolidate opinion on the ‘office of the future’…

The mass shift in mindset and the accelerated acceptance of the new normal has broken the myth about “the office” being essential. Because, irrespective of the on-goings in the health and economy sectors, work has not come to a standstill. In fact, the shift has paved the way for several global outfits now announcing a permanent work-from-home/ remote-working strategy.

What the industrial revolution did in the 18th century, contributing to the evolution of the office as we know it, now seems like a precursor to the impact the IT revolution is having on us, whilst we stand in its midst, slowly but surely succumbing to it completely, irrespective of class and genre.

The question that now arises is, are we making way for a new work-life idiom? How differently will companies design their physical workspaces? What will happen to the real estate investments of multinational offices with umpteen branches? How will HR function? How will the psyche be impacted? Will productivity be impacted? Will emotional intelligence be impacted?… and on… and on…

In this scenario, Team IndiaArtnDesign in association with ADI -Association of Designers of India and WE School, proposes the online research initiative – PIN Board – “the construct of the future of the office and its consequent industrial impact!”

With the manifold tangential approach that completes an ‘office’, we invite cross-disciplinary thought and problem-solution statements to a virtual platform to address both – existing and foreseeable issues of the office of the future.

Studies reveal that each office genre has its own set of challenges. To begin with, we are therefore currently focusing on:
– IT/IT services
– Design Studios
– Factory attached offices.
– Public Service establishments

We invite you to be part of an elite virtual think tank of subject matter experts, to explore roadblocks and propose solutions, to help formulate the ground rules for a future work environment.
