Cordless was founded in 1994 with the publication of the Cordless Office Report. The following year we worked with Ericsson, Intel, AT&T (as it was then) and Herman Miller to build the world's first wireless office. This was launched at Workplace 95 in Olympia and then installed for a year in the City of London.
In 1996 we launched UNWIRED, our knowledge division, and have continued to build our business on the back of an explosive growth of wireless technology and a realisation of the benefits and changes that this delivers to business and organisations.
We now operate globally from our bases in London and New York, and have a client list that includes the majority of the top FTSE and Fortune listed enterprises.
Our people combine knowledge and expertise in both technology and business trends, especially issues connected with architecture & design, facilities management, real estate, furniture and organisational behaviour
Much of our work has been associated with new ways of working or alternative officing and the technology enablers that are critical for success.
