OF-LABOUR SYSTEMS

WHAT
Reflecting on the powers that dictate our health routines in the context of increasingly digitised and efficient workspaces.

WHY
How much does an environment affect the physique of a worker? How far is the millennial willing to go to achieve physical ‘perfection’ within their working routine?

HOW
Of-Labour Systems’ is Rob Johnson’s fictional narrative that fuses the cultures of work and fitness, valuing our voluntary exhaustion as a precious commodity. The solo work station is designed around small gestures at the desk — balance seating, lighting manipulated by the heart rate, and full body choreography to ‘activate’ the desk and chair. The seating area includes a running machine for fitness fanatics.

QUOTE
How far is too far in a fitness- obsessed world?
