"Hard Work, Soft Office" with Deezen and ROOM | Monday, June 10th at 4:00pm

Join us on the first day of NeoCon for a discussion with Dezeen followed by cocktails.

Workspaces are defined by their composition. Thoughtfully arranging unique components to create a cohesive experience that works to inspire employees and boost performance. Yet composition has grown stagnant over the years resulting in rigid spaces built for uninspired, monotonous work, instead of fluid spaces designed for activity, creativity and movement.

How do we evolve from stagnant to dynamic and create softness in both texture and space where collaboration, connection, and productivity thrive? Join the conversation with ROOM Co-Founder Morten Meisner Jensen, OFS SVP Customer Experience, Molly Prior, and Graham Design Founder & Creative Director, Brian Graham.
