Vitra International, Head Research & Trendscouting
Raphael Gielgen has spent most of his professional life working on making the office environment a
better place. His curiosity for architecture, technology and social change in the context of working
environments is his fuel - always connected to the question of how the global working world is
changing and what impact it has on existing business models. Always on a journey to discover how
tomorrow’s work place will look, he regularly meets business leaders, architects and designers, a
community who can put this knowledge to the service of the society. My work informs Vitra´s
approach to improving the quality of offices and public spaces through the power of design by
serving the varied Vitra team with the results of my observations and cognitions by trend clusters,
market analysis and business cases.
Keep the Good work up!
