Described as the only international design event that ‘feels boutique, bespoke and local’, Singapore Indesign Intimate 2015 brought together local and international designs and discussions to Asia across July 9-10.
Part of the two-day event saw Schiavello Principal – People and Culture, Keti Malkoski, participate in ‘Design Conversations’, where she joined a panel of industry leaders including Matthew Burke (Geyer), Susan Lim (HASSELL) and Michael Wiener (Gensler) for ‘Work Life: The Culture of Workplace Strategy’ discussion.
The panel explored new workplace planning and design strategies penetrating the Asian market and navigated their way through the psychological, social and cultural challenges of workspace change. Malkoski in particular focused on human-centred considerations including emotional reactions to change and optimising ‘user participation’.
The curated two-day event also saw Schiavello exhibit the latest product innovations at the National Design Centre. Attendees were among the first to discover the newest furniture collections including the Kayt Village collection, Krossi, Bomba sofa and OTM Table.
