On 19th March, we hosted a panel discussion in the Shoreditch House Library to explore how the design of spaces and rituals – whether physical or digital – can affect creativity and happiness.
We spend a huge percentage of our time at work in offices, studios and meeting rooms, working within tightly structured systems. You may have felt the effects of how light and noise can change your working mood, or been exposed to the anxiety of hot-desking in a crowded office. But how much does the design of our workspaces actually affect the way we feel, how we interact with colleagues, and shape the quality of our ideas and outputs?
Continuing our focus on sharing ideas to support health, wellbeing and creativity in the workplace, we hosted a panel discussion in the Library at Shoreditch House to explore how the design of spaces and rituals – whether physical or digital – can affect creativity and happiness.
We heard from Oliver Marlow, Creative Director at Studio Tilt, who shared his expertise on the relationship between space, collaboration and creativity, and touched on the ideas included in Spaces for Innovation, the book he co-authored with Kirsty Groves. Oliver was joined by Mita Sparke of Second Home, a business creating and managing workspaces and creative hubs to support creativity and entrepreneurship in cities around the world. Finally we heard from Tim Dorsett, Culture Ambassador at Innocent Drinks, a brand renowned for its strong and energetic culture and iconic office space, Fruit Towers.
