Studio Tate will be hosting a webinar to discuss how COVID-19 has impacted workplace design on Wednesday 19 August 2020.
Titled The Future of Workplace Design – Challenges and Opportunities, it will be held at 1pm AEST and will be moderated by Australian Design Review editor Elisa Scarton.
Panelists will be discussing changes they anticipate to workplace design and furniture specifications, as well as looking at how COVID-19 has impacted the Central Business District and workplace culture, while ushering in the need for third spaces to keep employees separate.
Drawing from their industry experience, the speakers will also be sharing their advice on how businesses of all industries and sizes can develop new ways to build culture, ensure connections and foster innovation.
The panel will be headed by Studio Tate’s Alex Hopkins.
As design director at the Melbourne studio, Hopkins excels in developing creative solutions across the studio, whether on the business or design side with extensive experience across workplace, residential and hospitality industries.
Joining Hopkins will be LCS Consulting’ Lucy Symington, who specialises in commercial workplace transformation projects of varying scale, acting on behalf of the tenant.
Haworth’s Mathew Toniolo will also be speaking on the panel. Toniolo facilitates strategic client workshops for the office furniture manufacturer with business leads and users in a human-centred co-creation approach to workplace design.
The panel will also feature Shannon Steward. Project director at Vicinity, Steward manages a variety of projects including a strategy for evolving tradition and non-traditional workspaces across the real estate investment trust company’s portfolio in Australia.
At the end of the webinar, audience members will be invited to ask questions.
