What is “workcation”?
A coined word (bag word) combining the words “work” (labor) and “vacation” (vacation). Major media in English-speaking countries spell it as “workcation”[1][2]. A way of spending a vacation while working, utilizing telework (remote work) in tourist areas and resorts. It is distinguished from telecommuting or teleworking in a rented office. It is positioned as part of the encouragement of “new routines” in response to the change in work styles and the outbreak of the new coronavirus infection.

The Cappellini Thinking Man chair is made of steel and seems hard at first glance, but when you sit in it, the elasticity of the seat makes it strangely comfortable. It is an addictive chair.

Cappellini’s Thinking Man’s Chair

Modern design master Jasper Morrison designed this Thinking Man’s Chair by the Italian company Cappellini.

Designed in 1986 at the request of Cappellini and manufactured in 1989. It is a representative work designed by Jasper Morrison in his early years and is featured in 1000 Chairs published by Taschen. Originally designed as a drinking chair for placing glasses on a table, the name was changed after being inspired by the slogan “The Thinking Man’s Smoke” of a pipe cleaner purchased to make the chair model.
