WORKING FROM HOME: TAKE PART IN CSIL RESEARCH
The pandemic has fuelled the spread of working from home, which led to a redefinition of the customer’s demand for dedicated furniture and the rethinking of the workplace towards a 'hybrid' approach.
How are you experiencing working from home and how did you design or are you planning to design your home office? CSIL invites you to fill in a short questionnaire to bring out features of the home workspace. Instant results will be shown upon its completion.
