The first workplace appeared in the 15th century, it was created by the monks. The “scriptorium” became a workshop for copying manuscripts and was used by illuminators and scribes. There is almost no information about the development of this place. In 1726, special separate buildings were opened – offices. Prior to their arrival, business owners did clerical work right in their homes.
The 20th century has come and integrated more modern offices into our lives. Now there are a huge number of their varieties: business centers, co-working spaces, online offices, etc. And the invented technical means – laptops, tablets, phones have erased the lines between home and work.
