As the second instalment for i-FM, Adam shares his design thoughts on how to not get too distracted by latest design fades, trends and shiny cool gadgets of latest funky pieces of furniture which can often mislead clients desires. Instead the trick (if there is one) is being able to separate the cool and trendy from the new and valuable.
In the first of a three-part series featured in i-FM, co-founder Adam Burtt-Jones discusses how the convergence of different business disciplines will create better, more intelligent and more efficient workplaces, he focuses on why including everyone in the process will create far better outcomes.
The reason why workplaces so often fail to perform their primary function, to allow users to work productively, is that the custodians of their design are prone to making the same habitual mistakes. Adam goes on to argue that many of the mistakes in the design of today’s spaces are due to nothing more than laziness.
