Ideas Laboratory is pleased to invite designers from all over the world to participate in the 2016 Ideas Award. The goal is to discover and promote the most creative solution that will transform the way we live and interact with our environment in the context of coworking.

The 21st Century’s economy is shaped by two great movements: technology and globalization. Around the world, these movements are changing the workplace in a dramatic way Due to changes in the economy, the way we are working is evolving : start-ups, freelancers, sub-contractors… To be agile, companies need to open themselves to networks of experts and partners in a process of co-innovation and open-innovation. Coworking is a way for companies to be more competitive but also to improve the wellbeing at work of their employees: telecommuting, mobility, social links, good food…
For all these reasons, we believe new solutions for cowork places are a great challenge to tackle. This is a design competition and designers may submit ideas, and/or concepts. Projects will be evaluated based on creativity, originality, feasibility, function, and aesthetics.
