Martin Henn at the Paperworld 2019: From hierarchy to network

28.01.2019 – 

“Today's work processes are less characterised by hierarchy and control than by self-organizing, open structures.

Future working environments must react flexibly to the different spatial requirements, release potentials for interaction and collaboration, and, at the same time, stabilise and build identity.”

Martin Henn with a lecture joining the special exhibition panel „Office of the future“, Monday, January 28, 2019, 11:15 – 12 am, at Paperworld 2019 in Frankfurt am Main.
