Implications - The backlash to the open-concept work space has officially begun, as offices are being updated with sound-reducing and privacy-enhancing furniture.

Despite a noisy, interconnected digital world, quiet and solitude remain an important aspect of productivity, as well as hint to a broader preoccupation with self-discovery.
