Dezeen is the world’s most popular and influential architecture and design magazine, and the winner of numerous awards for journalism and publishing. As a contributor, I have written about design news and trends during Dutch Design Week. My article about Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Nienke Helder’s Sexual Healing project was a top story for several weeks.

At its core are around 100 pioneering projects drawn from 86 practices all over the world. Featured offices include ad agencies, media outfits, technology firms and co-workspaces, ranging from compact offices and design hubs to large workplaces.

The Other Office 3 is divided into three chapters, each of which offers insight into the main factors driving contemporary office design: the role of the workplace as a brand asset, the growing concern for employee wellbeing, and the need to create inspiring and energising workspaces.

Projects are presented on four to six pages, including an in-depth description of both concept and design, illustrated by stunning photography. Outlined are the challenges that designers must overcome to be able to realize more efficient, modern and – all importantly – creative work environments.
