Hosted by Jon Otis, owner of Object Agency and professor of the Exhibition Design Intensive Program at Pratt Institute, and joined by Stone Source Direct Senior Vice President Diane Barnes at the New York Stone Source showroom, this introduction to the business of networking between students and senior design professionals is now in its 12th year.

The Office: A Place for Collaboration or a Tool for Management Oppression?

3.2.15 | We are in a time of major change in what people expect from their offices, workers and employers alike. Since we all work in the field of workplace design and furnishing, we may welcome the opportunity to rise above the day-to-day fray and look at how and why the office came to be as it is. Speakers Nikil Saval and Adam Davidson at the 2015 BIFMA 360o Leadership Conference discussed the history and evolution of the office as we know it from its roots in the pre-industrial age.
