Episode 74: Recapping IA’s 2017 Global Design Forum
Recently, IA convened a specially selected group of designers from every office to explore a timely topic affecting the AEC industry. The 2017 Global Design Forum focused on the furniture selection process, both industry-wide and within IA. Junior Designers Julia Dane and Alicja Mrowinska as well as Intermediate Designer Irang Im joined us to highlight workplace design trends discussed at this year’s Forum.
Workplace design and furniture selections vary across the globe because countries have different requirements and needs.
Technology and the adaption of mobile and flexible workplaces are changing the way firms design spaces.
Today, firms and clients are starting to think about furniture at the beginning of the design process as opposed to second to the architectural solution.
