This year, Trend Hunter had the opportunity to curate a digital collection of trends for National Bank's WORK.SPACE exhibit at the Toronto Interior Design Show. As Chief Trend Hunter Jeremy Gutsche explains, it's becoming evermore popular to focus on the design of office spaces, "turning the offices into an element of branding."
Imposed interaction is also another big trend springing up all over the globe. For example, Google, Toronto has created an environment for employees where they are encouraged to be mobile and interact with different departments throughout the day. This is achieved with a communal dining area, creative meeting spaces and even an office mini-putt. Though this may seem potentially unproductive, many companies including Facebook, National Bank, Pixar, Inventionland and Oakley all see the clear benefits.
