Words by FX Magazine
Workspace Design Show, a new commercial interiors event happening on 4-5 November at London's Business Design Centre, has announced new speakers and partners for its inaugural event, as well as the second of its educational talks series taking place in the months ahead of the show.
After a first discussion that focused on sustainability standards, the Spotlight Series continues with a second event on the 7th May at 11am. Titled 'New Product Ideas for Tomorrow's Workspaces, suggested key questions include: 'How do designers enhance the future workspace experience through products? Should we focus on re-engineering existing products or designing brand new products? How is the dialogue between designers, clients and manufacturers evolving to create tomorrow’s products?'
The discussion will be chaired by Daniel Gava, brand strategy advisor for the A&D industry, while the speakers will be: Natasha Bonugli, global principal of design at Unispace; Stephen Philips, associate product designer at Arup; Yorgo Lykouria, creative director & founder of Rainlight; Collin Burry, principal at Gensler.
