These super compact offices seen here show that we are gradually giving up space in lieu of a more efficient work area. After all, many employees now need only a laptop to do all of their business, meaning a lot of the pre-existing office space is no longer needed.

For this reason, consumers seek furniture pieces that maximize their space by being very compact, yet functional. Furniture companies can manufacture pieces with these qualities to appeal to urban-based target markets.
