Raphael Gielgen, Trendscout Future of Work Vitra AG, Weil am Rhein
'The next Economy Ecosystem - wie die vor uns liegende Ökonomie die Architektur der Arbeit verändern wird'
RAPHAEL GIELGEN. Do you know the one in your company that some people think is crazy? Raphael Gielgen is one of those colleagues. His unrestrained curiosity, the restless search for explanation and the desire to turn everything upside down sometimes make him uncomfortable - and when he returns to the office after a long journey, he talks about things that sound more like virtual utopia than lived reality. He visits more than 100 companies, universities and start-ups a year, the world is his workplace, the future his field of research. His task is to travel the world and meet the protagonists of a new era. He documents his findings and experiences on a 'panorama'. This is a map of the trends and patterns of a new world.
