Workspaces need to create environments that foster creativity and innovation, while also being agile for the flexible working models that people require.

The workspace Show VIP lounge is designed to represent the ephemerality of our world, enhanced by the recent year of remote working and our increased reliance on digital communications. The outside world is brought into our homes in a way that we never have experienced. The lounge uses raw aluminium profiles and expanded metal mesh. These are 100% recyclable and do not contain any harmful coatings or use any harmful processes. Working together with OboLife, the UK dealer for Worksmith by Arcadia, this lounge is created as a place for being together in what could be the next workspace.
The space has been constructed with sustainability in mind, using raw aluminium profiles and expanded metal mesh, which are 100% recyclable and do not contain any harmful coatings or use any harmful processes. The materials used have been carefully selected, raw aluminium was chosen for its toughness, sustainability merits and delicate feel. The company responsible for designing the material, AASK US, were very accommodating of Rainlight and obo’s design aspirations, fulfilling the brief sensitively and accurately.

Story behind the Leisure Zone design
We wanted the area to be a place where inhibitions and insecurities are washed away allowing for open conversations and collaboration.
We wanted to create an area that encourages conversation. “All aspects of office design should put emphasis on communication and teamwork, the right interior design can encourage the interactions between people.” David Jackson – Seven Hills Workspace
“The creation of seated areas puts individuals in a position where they’re facing each other and also introducing fun and interesting areas such as the opportunity to play a game of pool will help engaging conversations to begin. These social settings make it very easy to interact and to break the ice.” Adam Taylor – Spaces Taylored

Entrance Feature by Lauren Lever
When I was first contacted by the Workspace Show to do a lighting installation for the event in November at the Business Design Centre, I was excited to see what could be achievable within this iconic space. Lighting installations should be fun, engaging and draw people in. Light is a fantastic medium to use and has the ability to create a wide range of atmospheres and environments for people to interact with.
The product that we have used for the installation is from PROLICHT; an Austrian company with a flair for modern and functional architectural lighting. They have recently collaborated with Tom Dixon to create a wonderful lighting range called the CODE.
This range of fittings shows both a rawness and industrial feel to LED technology. The flexibility of the product allows the user to create a diverse range of lighting installations with its simplistic approach of utilising its track mounting function.
My vision for the welcoming experience to the Workspace show plays on the theatrical nature of the cinematic world; heavy drapes creating a luxurious and moody backdrop, waiting for the main feature to begin in excitement and anticipation. Replacing the fabric materials with lighting, in connection with the use of clever programming, we can create this same wonderous world for you all to view and enjoy.
