The True Measure of A Space Is How it Makes Us Feel

Presented by: Laura Lee Ross from Teknion

Every interior evokes a response among those who interact with it. If an interior space – in particular, a workspace – derives meaning from its inhabitants, then we will measure a space – whatever its function – by how it makes us feel. This seminar puts interior design to use to create more happiness at work. Using sketches, mood boards and real project examples, the conversation will range across the types of spaces one encounter in the modern office over the course of a workday, to propose that feeling welcome, empowered, connected, calm and comfortable helps people to do their best.

12:30 – 1:30pm
