The future of coworkingEach and everyday, more and more people are discovering coworking. The movement is not only a great alternative for independent workers, but it has been proven time and time again to be a sustainable and clearly identified solution for entrepreneurs and freelancers looking to build a network and collaborate with like-minded people.

The hidden treasures of coworkingIn recent years, coworking has drawn curiosity from the academic world.

To show its potential, Deskmag has highlighted some works studying coworking from an academic point of view.
