After the Covid-19 lockdown, 3 Italians out of 4 would like to continue with remote working
DesignTech Hub has commissioned Istituto Piepoli a survey to explore the relationship between people, design and technology in everyday life. Alessandro De Cillis, co-founder & CMO of DesignTech Hub, explains: “The research carried out by Istituto Piepoli allowed us to understand people’s new attitude towards technology and remote working. The analysis of people’s requests suggests the guidelines for the evolution of design of both public and private spaces.”
The research shows that, according to almost 90% of Italians, smart working is very useful for companies. New remote working modes are approved by both young people and people over 54 years of age. It would therefore seem that there is no digital divide between generations, at least as far as remote working is concerned.

Most Italians, 2 out of 3, think that technology played a crucial role during the lockdown. Younger people and those in the 35-54 age group think that, in the future, they will use technology much more, while the over 54 age group is more hesitant about a greater use of technology in everyday life. Moreover, 3 Italians out of 4 would like to continue to work remotely, even after the end of the emergency.
Design for the future
Finally, the role of design. According to 8 Italians out of 10, design will play an important role in redefining some aspects of everyday life. 2 people out of 3 think that it will be vital to reorganize private spaces and 85% of the respondents think that a new arrangement of public spaces will be necessary as well.
