Free pop-up co-work space to launch in Shoreditch next week
The Office Group's 'Art-Work' pop-up will give entrepreneurs access to meeting rooms, a gym, cafe and even a deckchair cinema until February 26
Flexible workspace provider The Office Group is to open a free pop-up co-working space in Shoreditch on Friday 15 January.
Featuring a co-working space, a quiet zone and an interactive art workshop by Creative Debuts that will showcase emerging artists, the ‘Art-Work’ pop-up will be divided into separate areas with the aim of exploring “how different ways of working affect productivity, concentration and creativity”.
Based in Albert House on Old Street roundabout, business owners will also have access to the building’s facilities, which include meeting rooms, a gym, a café, bike racks, a lounge area and a deckchair cinema.
A series of events have been planned for the pop-up to “keep creativity flowing”, such as music sessions with Digby & Funster and Hoxton FM, as well as a beginners guide to coding, yoga, knitting, crochet and art classes.
The ‘Art-Work’ pop-up will be open until 26 February and will run from 8am to 9pm Monday to Friday.
Olly Olsen, co-CEO of The Office Group, said: “The way we work is constantly evolving, so we want to create a pop-up with different environments and activities to get feedback on the perfect workplace.
“Whether it’s art on the walls or taking a break from your desk to use a different skill set, we believe that design and creativity should take a bigger role in office life.”
