American Express has created billboards that turn into desks, park benches with charging stations and outdoor private phone booths for work calls in New York, Chicago and Austin, BizBash reported.
The efforts by the credit-card company are part of a marketing campaign aimed and small and mid-size businesses, according to the report.
In a similarly themed outdoor effort, beer maker Anheuser-Busch opened its TreeWork co-working space in Colorado. It’s equipped with wifi, grilling and campfire amenities along with the ability to spend the night outdoors (until Sept. 27), BizBash said.
In addition, the Finnish city of Lahti, in a bid to encourage residents to enjoy nature, has installed free workstations in wooded areas. The workstations were attached so they would not harm trees.
