Learning about the office from other environments

Life of Work


In 2014, Jeremy Myerson and Imogen Privett of the Royal College of Art officially launched their book "Life of Work - What office design can learn from the world around us". The launch took place at Orgatec, on Haworth's booth.

Throughout 2015, the authors are touring Haworth's European showrooms to present their research, promote the book and take the opportunity to engage with their readership and get feedback from open discussions.
