“Fieldwork do ethnographic research into working life, which entails making visible the ordinary and extraordinary things that might go unnoticed in day to day office life. Fieldwork use Ethnography to hold up a lens to the way people live and work. They do this to shed new light on old habits, cultural things that have become ingrained and no longer serve their clients, things that are invisible because people pass them everyday, and things that are automatic.” Curtis James. Fieldwork Founder.
The desk which folds into a flightcase on wheels is used as a portable research lab. While we may not be doing research into Ethnography we are pretty keen on this design and the concept of a foldaway desk space on wheels. With so many people working from home or working remotely how cool would it be to fold away your workspace at the end of the day, a bit like locking the office door, what do you think?

Heading anywhere near the Swiss town of Lausanne in August or September, then you are in for a real treat as the Villa Le Lac Le Corbusier museum has commissioned ten of today’s leading architects to create designs for an extension to Villa Le Lac. The Homage to Le Corbusier exhibition shows what the group of architects came up with, alongside some drawings of Villa Le Lac by Le Corbusier and photographs from the period 1920-1930. Fifty years after the death of one of the pioneers of Modern Architecture this exhibition is a must for anyone interested in his work.
