Wellness Design

And while “wellness” has recently become a design industry headline in response to the pandemic, it’s a trend that we’ve been tracking (and talking about!) for years. We’ll share our insight into how HSW is so much more than codes and standards, with profitable business opportunities that fit right in with the consumer desire to improve their health, safety, and wellness at home.

We are in the midst of monumental change, so it seems to make sense to apply a little chaos theory to the situation!

If you want design-industry-specific insights that will encourage you to  “be the butterfly” and enact changes in your business—join us for this session.

The pandemic has accelerated consumers attitudes regarding waste, safety, comfort, and health, particularly in regards to their indoor environments. We’ll explore the links between material innovations, sustainability, wellness, and emerging consumer demands and provide an overview of high-impact materials that are changing the present and future of design. 

Opportunity + Innovation = The New Next

No one knows for sure what the “new normal” will be, but the “new next” is already here. Consumers have already changed their behaviors, businesses have already changed their processes, and design businesses need to change as well in order to address new consumer needs. We’ll feature our favourite examples from across industries with suggestions for how these can be adapted to design in an inspirational “steal this idea” presentation.
