Conversations about the Future of the Office

One of the main exhibitions planned for Helsinki Design Week 2021 was The Future of the Office Installation series. The Covid-19 pandemic changed those plans. Even though the main events were cancelled, the conversations carry on.

HDW invited Monocle’s Helsinki correspondent Petri Burtsoff to speak to a group of inspiring trend experts specialized in the changes of working and living in cities. The result is a topical and inspiring podcast series. Four out of five episodes are in Finnish, all of them can be found here.

The third episode is a special one: it features Tim Reusch and Robin Wycherly. In this English-language episode of HDW’s The Future of the Office podcast, we look at the key trends in office design and how the pandemic has affected our spatial needs in the office. We also talk about wellness, Vitra’s new workplace concepts and design’s role in attracting people back into the office. Our guests are Tim Reusch, Head of Vitra’s Consulting and Planning Studio, and Robin Wycherly, a Workplace Interior Architect and the founder of the Helsinki-based design studio Itu Design. The episode is hosted by Monocle’s Helsinki correspondent Petri Burtsoff.
