The future is not the same as the past.
That is the takeaway from a new report from research firm Recode.
It predicts office furniture will become less commonplace in the near future, and that we will have fewer office spaces and fewer offices than we used to.
The office table, meanwhile, will become a thing of the past, replaced by more work-related devices and services like apps.
Recode called this the “office revolution,” which is a fancy way of saying it will disrupt the way we do work.
“We’re going to have an explosion in the number of devices that can be used for work,” Recode co-founder Reid Hoffman told Recode’s Dave Zirin.
“So it will change how we do business.”

In this future, office furniture is going to become a novelty.
