19 Aug Episode 50: How Should We Re-Think Design for the Post-Pandemic Work World?
Sooner or later we will be going back to offices and work space, but we will be doing it with a different mindset. Partly that is around how safety how do we set things up so we don’t spread the next virus, but there are other considerations as well. We have gotten used to working from home, maybe from outside on our patios or in different places and we are going to bring a different sensibility to where we work when we come back. Given all of that, what should workspaces look like? Our guest on this episode is Nasim Kurting, Head of Design at the Office Group London, England. Even before the pandemic, Nasim was involved in creating flexible workplaces and she has a lot of what office design should look like as we move to the next phase of the pandemic and beyond.
