KNOLL INTERNATIONAL - London Workplace Trends
London Workplace Trends
We all know what an office looks like, right? Tall buildings in steel and glass, with leather chairs and marble-floored reception areas. These muscular expressions of corporate culture will remain with us for decades to come, but how can the spaces within be reconciled with the values of a younger generation? This presentation provides an overview of emerging workplace trends and new expressions of corporate culture.

Knoll is a constellation of design-driven brands and people, working with clients to create inspired modern interiors. Knoll’s founders, Hans and Florence Knoll, embraced the creative genius at the Bauhaus School and Cranbrook Academy of Art to create new types of furniture and workplace environments. Their approach anchors Knoll’s perspective and shapes the values the company endeavours to live by today.
