KLC Connect Webinar: Time for Change
17th September 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
HOW WILL INTERIOR DESIGNERS RESPOND TO THE NEED FOR CHANGE IN THE POST LOCKDOWN DOWNTURN?
Hosted by KLC School of Design
The panel will reflect on the challenges faced by design practices with reduced need for office spaces, a shift to online shopping and the knock on effect on the retail and hospitality industries. They will also consider the opportunities presented by home office working, smaller office hubs, access to wider markets and the churn in the property market as city workers re-locate. Discussion will also focus on considerations for educators and potential changes in career opportunities for designers
