The Assemblage is a New York-based community that combines co-working spaces and short-term residential living with the idea of interconnectedness and collective consciousness.
Its first location opened in New York's NoMad neighbourhood this month. The 47,000 sq ft building comprises 12 floors for co-working and features meditation rooms equipped with artificial intelligence, which guides members through daily mantras.
The venue also offers holistic services such as Ayurvedic community lunches and mindfulness programmes. Two more spaces are set to open on Park Avenue and in the Financial District. The Assemblage also plans to open branches in cities around the world. Membership starts at $200 per month for evening-only access and costs up to $6,500 for a private office.
Chief executive Rodrigo Niño defines The Assemblage's audience as the people who are at "the intersection of technology, consciousness and capital". He founded The Assemblage to offer "a place of convergence for those who feel we could be defined not only by the known, but by the unknown".
The Assemblage's main goal is to align positive social change. Its principles are to help others as a form of self-interest, to make a commitment to personal transformation, and to do good.
As outlined in The Purpose Collective, people are searching for meaning in their workplace more than ever before. For more on how the way we work is evolving, see our latest Macro Trend, The Work/Life Revolution.
