You might remember this post from last May about the growth in flexible working and coworking spaces where people who work alone get together to work alongside each other in cool spaces. Now, with “global trends for swapping, trading and skill sharing”, The Handbook is tipping 2012 as the year of “creative collaboration”.
Apartment 58 describes itself as “a new global concept club providing a work and socialising space for the creative industry”.
The first London club opens in Poland St in Soho, there are plans to open Apartment 58 in Notting Hill and Shoreditch.
And here’s the even cooler bit:
There are rumours that people like Kanye West, Dizzee Rascal and Alexa Chung could be invited to the advisory committee. Plus there’s a local gourmet delivery service. And an in-house bar.
