The ‘HÔTEL TRAVAIL’ installation illustrates a new workspace concept. Freelancing and the insecurities that come with entrepreneurship have changed work and our attitudes toward it. With fewer and fewer people working in life-long jobs or in fixed workplaces, Shay Raviv was inspired to offer the roving, job-hopping worker a sense of stability and safety: a physical environment and a service, joining hospitality locations with professional online networks. Here, workers can be surrounded by other workers, cultures, knowledge, and have unexpected encounters. Within HÔTEL TRAVAIL’s different zones they will find facilities like a Reference Fountain, Wi-Fi Shelter, Debate Carousel and The Workcycle.
