NBBJ to Design Workplace Installation at 100% Design in London

12 August, 2014

-By Cody Calamaio



Architecture and design firm NBBJ will design a special installation at 100% Design, an international design festival held September 17-20 in London. 

The installation, titled "iAlter," will be part of the 100% Workplace exhibition, which is dedicated to innovation in the working environment. The installation aims to influence the nature of the space to create a variety of environmental experiences for users interacting with the hub’s social facilities and bar.

“Inspired by the simplicity of kinetic sculpture and the complexity of our design algorithms, we wanted to create a space that flexes in response to people flow and gently encourages serendipitous encounters," David Lewis, principal at NBBJ, said in a statement.

The 100% Workplace exhibition will examine the infusion of hospitality in the work environment, and aims to highlight the multidisciplinary nature of the workplace. The space will offer networking and social areas, inspired by the concept of serendipity.

"Workplace design is a key area that has seen a growing demand in recent years," William Knight, 100% Design show director said in a statement. "This very much reflects the way we work now – an office is no longer just a place where people work, it is also a hub where we exchange ideas and inspire each other."
