Kogan's Office of the Future

Kogan's Office of the Future

Posted: 01 Aug 2011

At Kogan, our philosophy is "There is always a better way". This guides every element of our business - including our workspace. We were one of the first companies in Australia to implement a truly paperless operation. Now we're the first to do something else with our office.

You see, the Internet is causing the world to change at a rapid pace and this includes the work environment. If you look at the workspace of any business 10 years ago, you will find a cabinet with lots of files, a big desk with mounds of paper on it, bookshelves with reading material, and a lot of general clutter.

Today, all of this is replaced with just one tool: a laptop.

We recognised this at Kogan and worked with a furniture manufacturer to create the ultimate GenY workspace for our staff. After all, the average age of our staff is 25 and this is massively skewed by our Operations Manager who is nearing 40! :-).

We have created new work pods which we think are the future of office spaces around the world. The chairs are unbelievably comfortable, and they have built-in heating, massage, speakers, and even SD and USB slots to play music. We’re in tech heaven!

The ultimate GenY workspace consists of an ultra comfortable chair with a built in laptop stand. It also features:

Massage and heating functions to keep you comfortable and relaxed while you work

Built in stereo speakers

And a remote to control all the functions!

What do you think about what we've done to our workplace? Would you like to see these in your office?
