Unique insights on what matters most today in commercial real estate.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Hybrid work has brought interior design innovation to the forefront of conversations around productivity and the value of the office.

  2. Many organizations are seeking intelligent ways to incorporate technology into the workplace design, and even their furniture, to measure their occupancy and effectiveness.

  3. People do not want to come into the office and do the same work they do at home, so office design must account for changed workplace uses.
