Combo – mobility, work and technology
Combo is designed to enhance creative collaboration in public spaces.
Combo is a platform with attached laptop tables, movable seats and wireless phone charging that can be used by one to four persons. This project is developed in collaboration with Finnish company “PowerKiss” (now “powermat”) which provides wireless charging for mobile phones.
Today’s information society demands us an ability to adapt for rapid changes by forthcoming technologies, however successful working environment does not only comes from technology advances. Even if the technologies facilitate the information management and flows, nothing can substitute human to human collaboration which will remain at the centre of our workflows for the generations to come. For supportintg both − the technological and the human networking − there is a need for a new type of space, a hybrid space.
