Speaking with two of the world’s leading designers, we explore the lasting legacy of Danish Design and how the practices can be applied to modern work.

WEDNESDAY  15:00 – 16:30

Lighting expert Kristian Krogh from Dynamic Environments Group will host a CPD seminar exploring the effects of lighting upon staff wellbeing and design methods to help people create their best work.

When considering light in architecture and interiors, it is only too often only thought of in terms of lux or lumens. This seminar looks at a human-centric approach to lighting, exploring where art and science can overlap to create spaces that support our daily work objectives and activities.
