Work Design Now 2013

Work Design Now is a research program conducted by Work Design Magazine and sponsored by Haworth Inc.

The program brings together industry practitioners to fully explore the goals, workplace challenges, and solutions driving modern corporate design decisions.

Each of the three annual Work Design Now roundtable discussions takes place in a completed space that exemplifies smart design. The purpose is to:

  • Conduct a round table discussion, interview, and report that document the space’s pragmatic solutions to today’s office environment
  • Highlight remarkable examples (virtual tour/video) of what integrated, flexible, and extensible design solutions can look like in today’s most innovative workplaces
  • Educate other design professionals through resulting articles, galleries, and videos published in Work Design Magazine, which has more than 10,000 readers/month


AIA-IAKC and IIDA also support the program.
