The Innovative Coworking Spaces of 15th-Century Italy. Coworking spaces are on the rise, from Google’s “Campus” in London to NextSpace in California.
Much has been made of these shared workspaces as a brand-new idea, one that barely existed 10 years ago. But the way they function reminds me of a very old idea: the Renaissance “bottega” (workshop) of 15th-century Florence, in which master artists were committed to teaching new artists, talents were nurtured, new techniques were at work, and new artistic forms came to light with artists competing among themselves but also working together. The Renaissance put knowledge at the heart of value creation, which took place in the workshops of these artisans, craftsmen, and artists.

Podcast for Creative Entrepreneurs. The Next Big Interior Design Trend: The Artisan Way. Photo Courtesy of Stil Novo Design When a piece of furniture -or home decor- is individually handcrafted by an artisan, rather than mass produced through a factory chain, that instantly adds a distinct and personal touch to any interior space. Handmade products require time, artistry and skills which, once combined, give life to pieces greatly enriched by the care and personal attention invested by the artisan behind their creation. While the commonly defined as 'shabby chic' style doesn't truly have what it takes to be combined with a polished interior décor, the new generation of more stylistically interesting craftsman designs combines all the elements necessary to successfully integrate handcrafted pieces into any interior design, from the rustic to the more modern & contemporary.
Where to go on a dogsledding adventure. Six creative ways artists can improve communities. From income inequality and unemployment to poverty, education and healthcare, communities around the world are facing critical challenges that require creative ideas and solutions.
