cubed: a secret history of the workplace. nikil saval.
We should all apologize to Nikil Saval, author of Cubed: The Secret History of the Work Place. We design buffs, I mean, because this book is all about design history, sociology, economics and psychology. It should be a best seller, if we lived up to what they claim to be our design values. The history of the office, from Bartelby and Scrooge to Office Space is a rich terrain. And was the Aeron chair really adapted from a chair designed for nursing homes?
