The Future of Workplace Design: Reimagining the Office in a Post-Pandemic World
Domus & #DesignPopUp invite you to join the #DesignPopUp Virtual Panel webinar on Tuesday 23rd February at 10.30 am.
In a Q&A session, our guest speakers will focus on the current outlook for office-based work in a post-Covid world, including how the pandemic has not just challenged, but fundamentally changed the long-held assumption that businesses require traditional office space for their workers. Focusing on what the future role of a central office could look like, the speakers will explore ideas for architects and designers to help future-proof new workspace design and ensure offices do not become altogether redundant, along with the vital role design innovation and technology will play.
