Since people have been working in offices, there have been trailblazers searching for different ways to structure the workplace. Well, maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement, but it’s undoubtedly true that innovators are always looking for different ways to engage with their environments. Naturally, that extends to the work environment. Enter coworking, stage right!

Over the past decade, coworking has rapidly risen in popularity all over the world. It no longer caters only to freelancers and start-ups but attracts a wide range of people from different industries, as well as large organizations, like Microsoft, Google and Bank of America. The concept of coworking has transformed office culture as we know it.
