Off Labour System is a fictional narrative written by designer Rob Johnson during his Social Design MA at the Design Academy Eindhoven. His concept '"fuses the cultures of work and fitness, valuing our voluntary exhaustion as a precious commodity. Reflecting on the powers that dictate our health routines in the context of increasingly digitised and efficient workspaces, how much does an environment affect the physique of a worker? How far is the millennial willing to go to achieve physical ‘perfection’ within their working routine? The solo work station is designed around small gestures at the desk — balance seating, lighting manipulated by the heart rate, and full body choreography to ‘activate’ the desk and chair. How far is too far in a fitness- obsessed world?"
