Design For The Client You Never Meet

More than half of all design projects fall outside of the private residential realm. In the workplace, healthcare, education, hospitality and residential development sectors, interior designers are frequently creating schemes for 'clients' that they never meet.

Design For Activity-Based Working

In this episode, we’re joined by May Fawzy from award-winning interior architecture and design firm, MF Design Studio, to explore the impact of activity-based working on office design. Back in the day, the corporate workplace used to be filled with serried rows of employees in battery-style cubicles while bosses resided in spacious paneled offices on the upper floors of the building. Today’s organisations measure their success by the ideas, innovation and creativity of their teams. And, when individuals come together to talk, big ideas are born. The result is a more flexible approach to workplace design where staff can occupy any space at any point of their day depending on the activity they are performing. But what does activity-based working mean for the interior designer? Listen in to find out in this show, recorded at Workstories in Clerkenwell, the commercial furniture company, representing 6 brands carefully curated from across the globe for workspace, hospitality and residential projects. This show is brought to you with support from Bureau. ...
