Features dedicated to the workplace industry
Workspace Design Talks Lounge
The Workspace Design Talks will take place in Square One created by CBRE, a stage design sponsored by Workbrands to host panel discussions. As an epicenter of design democracy, CBRE designed the space as a backdrop for many different discussions on a variety of topics, inspired by the ancient city square in Greece, the Agora. Throughout history, the agora has served as a fundamental gathering place for communities, embodying the ideals of democratic discourse, collaboration, and harmonious coexistence with the natural world. It represents a timeless archetype—a space where individuals come together to engage in intellectual pursuits, debate ideas, and collectively shape the course of their society.
In order to align seamlessly with Workbrands’ mission and operational approach, they challenged CBRE to design the entire setup in a circular manner. This direction reflects their dedication to hosting a lounge that contributes to a sustainable future. To minimize the carbon footprint, the featured elements will be re-used after the show.
Occupiers Forum Space
The Occupiers Forum, designed by Hollandse Nieuwe, centers around the concept of the modern workplace. In recent years, the idea of work and where it occurs has been a prominent topic of discussion, driven by lockdowns, remote work, and hybrid solutions. With no definitive ‘new normal’ to rely on, the Occupiers Forum serves as a platform for these important conversations. It not only highlights attitudes surrounding the idea of the workplace but also reflects the climate in which these spaces are conceived and developed and creating a fitting backdrop for the many inspiring panel discussions scheduled during the Workspace Design Show. Sustainability and circularity, integral to workplace projects and conversations, are embodied in the stand’s Zero-sum design, where every component is returned, recycled, or reused.
The design itself draws inspiration from the simplicity of billboards, a versatile communication tool capable of engaging the entire venue, and with the potential to communicate in different ways. The bold design of the stand is simultaneously thought-provoking and welcoming.
Taking place in the Design Talks Lounge, designed by CBRE Design Collective and sponsored by Workbrands, offering you the chance to listen to insightful panel discussions in a beautifully curated learning environment. Thought leaders will present a variety of perspectives on topics such as:
- The Magnetic Workplace
- Designing for Workplace Wellbeing
- Unlocking the Potential for Circular Workplace Design
- Lighting Design: Wellbeing vs Sustainability
- Learning from Hospitality & Residential Design
- Building a Community
Designed by Hollandse Nieuwe, The Occupiers Forum presents a series of panel discussions from some of the leading Dutch, Belgian and global Occupiers. Insights into the future of workplace strategy and culture will explore topics such as:
- Using Data to Improve the Employee Experience
- Employee Wellbeing & Hybrid Transformation
- The Importance of User Journeys
- Transformation of FM in light of War4Talent
- Better than home- engaging employees in the Brand DNA
