Upon first glance, the new conceptual office by Dutch design firm RAAAF resembles an obstacle course made of concrete blocks; however, the number of professionals sprawled across or leaning against these blocks tapping away on their laptops suggests the real function of the space as an avant-garde reinterpretation of the modern working environment. Aiming to tackle the myriad health problems — including heart disease and diabetes — associated with sitting in the same position for eight or more hours every day at the typical desk job, the forward-thinkers at RAAAF partnered with the University of Groningen to design the installation that encourages workers to change position several times throughout the day, each time making you put more pressure on your legs. While the installation remains a thought-provoking experiment, furniture makers have already started calling. Check it out for yourself at Amsterdam’s Looiersgracht 60 art gallery.
