Rise of the flash team: designing the agile office

Rise of the flash team:
designing the agile office

We brought together experts from Gensler, Steelcase and GoSpace for a discussion to thrash out how interior design can meet the needs of today's hyper-flexible organisations.

This video gives you the highlights, including how one of the world's biggest design firms reworked its own office, the four things teams need from their spaces to enable innovation and how AI is radically changing space planning for the workplace.

This is one of two special Clippings in Conversation panels we held at designjunction during the London Design Festival, moderated by our trends editor Marius Thies. You can also watch the first talk, titled Over exposure: resetting the open office for a look at how new research can inform approaches to interior design that make open-plan offices more productive - and pleasurable - places to work.

We'll be hosting a series of discussions on designing for tomorrow's workforce this autumn, so make sure you're subscribed to our newsletters if you want to be kept in the loop.
