3-D Printed Everything
"Print the Future is about more than just furniture; it’s about innovation, and making ideas on demand a reality by moving the needle in the 3D printing space, the possibilities being endless,”
3D printing has technically been around since 1984, but the availability of the service has been only recent to outside users. This company, Print the Future, intends to establish itself as synonymous with the 3D printing world as the turn into the future of technology evolves.
With the use of compatible programs, any user has the ability to print their designs. Designs can range from any size up to a 5x5ft boundary. Eventually, the company intends to spread around the world and make 3D printing an accessible service. Users will have the opportunity to choose a piece of furniture, (or design their own), and watch it be printed before their eyes. The printing process has been revolutionized to only take 24 hours or less for each piece of furniture.

Individual Work Space
"Connection, collaboration, and contribution are the core elements of our strategy, and our space needs to support that".
Now more than ever, the collaborative work space is being encouraged and established within the interior environment. While there are many benefits that the collaborative world can bring, a group of researchers has questioned the trend. They believe that each employee is a crucial part of the brand of a company. While collaborative areas can be effective within some working communities, it may not need to be integrated in others.
The research group began to compare different generations and their work styles, attempting to understand their differences. Through their research, they determined that the work place is not a reflection of the age of its employees, but rather the brand. Because employees reflect the brand, it is important to engage them to understand what type of office environment needs to be established.
"Soft chairs might be trendy, but if they’re not connected to purpose and passion, nobody uses them".
