Having addressed the issue of Adapting Our Practice and Adapting Our Industry in previous episodes, this episode will discuss how the industry will be adapting designs. More specifically, what our homes and workplaces ten years from now may look like – and what types of rooms society will put more emphasis on.

Mark Nestler, president, Nestler Strategies comments on how we may find interior design principles ‘going back to 90s’ with a drive for clear and minimalist interiors as we seek to create the perception that public spaces are clean and healthy; placing importance on how healthcare design will impact on corporate design, and the key considerations which will start to filter across the sectors.
