I've thought about this, and even written about this here a little bit, but haven't ever really conceptualized the thing that feels so weird. Not sure what the fuck I'm saying? Well here's the revelation: lots of interior companies these days are bring the home into the office to create a friendly and comfortable environment. When will this experience reverse and lead to the work being taken into the home unwittingly?
This has been niggling me for a while, not only because I have a terrible time dealing with my own separation issues from work and responsibility. The promulgation of technology and it's place in our homes and bedrooms have led us to spend less and less time offline or detached from the workplace.
My question is, how long is it before we reject the style of home furnishings which are beginning to become synonymous with our work environments, in favor of something which lets us psychologically disconnect from work? Will mid-cenury modern become a victim of the corporate environment it is entering more and more? This might sound completely the opposite of the positive tone of the an earlier post (Listening to societal shifts is important: work/life balance), and it is—I guess I don't think this is a totally good or totally bad situation, but the focus on it at the moment is sure to lead to some sort of response in society.
Your thoughts are welcome.
