The office furniture sector's annual celebration of design form and function is set to take place during Clerkenwell Design Week, which begins on Monday.
The central London suburb is hosting a number of installations, product exhibitions and events, with a series of sessions of likely interest to workplace and facilities managers.
Across the three days from Tuesday to Thursday, themed presentations include the following topics:
Workplace furniture: is technology making the old models of manufacturing redundant? And how environmentally sustainable can it ever be?
With the culture of work having transformed in the last 10 years, what does the move away from hierarchical office systems mean for the architects and designers tasked with creating the workplaces of tomorrow?
What is the impact of tech on our minds and bodies; how can we better design our world to make technology truly work for us?
As just 25% of design firm leaders are female, and only 22% of the workforce are women, how can WOD (Women in Office Design) affect levels of diversity, inclusion and the future of women in design?
Tickets for individual sessions cost £5 and can be booked here.
