The Mobile Office:
An autoenthnographic account
Keywords:Mobile office, Spatial design, Interior architecture
This paper examines the ways in which women use laptops to construct a flexible workspace in multiple environments. This phenomenon of the mobile office raises questions about the psychology of space with respect to domestic and public spaces, the role ‘things’ play in creating ‘place’, and the implications for interior design. An autoethnographic approach provides the stimulus for this analysis.
