HOW TO WOW Using Nature's Potential to Blow Everyone Away!

Anicee Bauer, environmental psychologist at Design Studio D/DOCK in Amsterdam, will first give an overview of the background, the effects and the different patterns of Biophilic Design, tapping into the broad and diverse possibilities of translating nature into design (elements). Having set the stage, the Masterclass will offer a series of ideation exercises, where participants are challenged to think out-of-the-ordinary, make odd connections and together synergize design ideas that are “out there”! The experiences and difficulties of “opening up your mind” and “letting go of restrictions” are discussed and reflected upon: (how) can this approach be (made) suitable for the work process between clients and designers? Could it help company’s to create an environment, that never bores – that attracts the workforce they want, that unites people and that reflects a common identity? … Or are we imagining things here? …;-)

The Future of Work Beyond Space

Space Matters. No doubt about that. Space helps to stimulate creativity and innovation. Office space is a great ‘tool’ to influence behaviour in organizations and facilitate productivity and collaboration. The shift we are making in this era is however more meaningful and might be astronomous. What we call ‘the future of work” is at its core a deep collective shift regarding the way we work, contribute, lead and live.

In this masterclass Rosan will share her vision on our changing work- en lifestyle patterns and trends. What are the trends and next steps shaping the future of work? This masterclass will be inspiring, (inter)active and lively. You will be challenged to envision the future of work for your organization, team or crowd. Next to that you will leave this space with some hands-on ideas that will help you translate the future to actions in the here and now.

What if We Fly? Creating Space for Innovation

How do you create an agile work environment? And how do you ensure that space strengthens an agile culture? Meet Kristine from launchlabs Berlin and Jeroen from Accenture Netherlands and start co-creating The Agile Work Environment of the Future!

Kristine and Jeroen worked together on many occasions helping both training participants and clients to reach the next innovation level. Not only do they live and teach an agile mindset themselves, they also create and use both physical and mental space to support this way of working.

During their interactive Masterclass, you will:

  • Get to understand the basic principles of innovation-enhancing work environments
  • Earn from their practical experience: what are do's and dont's regarding workspace design?
  • Co-create your preferred agile workspace using Design Thinking
  • Try out and reflect upon materials and furniture that are already in itself

Be prepared for 90 minutes of space-related f*ck-ups and successes, while taking away concrete leads to create an agile work environment that matches your needs.
