  • Multisensory Design: A Human Approach to the Workplace

    Join us on Wednesday October 19th @ 2pm EST, to participate in a webinar led by Melissa Marsh. Occupants, as consumers, are demanding that their work environments be accommodating and delightful spaces to occupy. This consumerization of the workplace has been accelerated by the coworking and flexible office industry. Evolving occupant demands call for a need to think about the design of workplace environments with a focus on the multisensory experience so that we are truly creating spaces for people and not machines.
