Warmth, movement, simplicity, community—welcome to the progressive
office of today. The open concept is no longer a trend but a mainstay,
and as the cloud and cordless technologies free us from desks, designers
are shifting to support the new social spaces. For the latest, we look to
the NeoCon trade show. Each June, some 50,000 designers descend
on Chicago for this event to take in the latest commercial design and
business trends. In 2016, the cubicle is out and customization is in.
