Digital design talk explores our changing habits of work - sign up today

Register today to be in the audience for online panel discussion 'Out Of Office' on 16th November, as part of the Super Design festival

For many office workers, 2020 has radically altered where we work from. Never before have we spent so much time working outside of the traditional office.


On Monday 16th November join a panel of architecture and design experts as they explore the complex issues arising from the fundamental shift in where we are working.


Out of Office: the New Working Culture is a digital discussion sponsored by Flokk, where guest speakers Simon Pole (Unispace), Sue Fenton (Woods Bagot), Kirsti Simpson (HASSELL) and Nic Brunsdon (Nic Brunsdon) analyses those rapid shifts to forecast a future of hybrid spaces.


The discussion is one of many elements of the Super Design festival, taking place from the16th – 27th November online worldwide and offline in Victoria, Australia, which has recently emerged from a 100-day lockdown.


Registration is free and all online events can be viewed live or on-demand at a later date.
