Last night I attended a networking event hosted by the team at Teknion, "Technology Innovations in the Workplace". We were treated to a presentation by Mike Adams from Vega, discussing how technology, design, architecture and furniture can combine to create a harmonious workplace.
This event highlighted innovative and exciting technology which together can make our workplace and most importantly our meeting rooms more productive and engaging.
Transparent LED glass panels
With examples from a Candian retailer using this technology to display their product or a building in China completely covered in the panels turning it into a 3D light show.
For meeting rooms with Video Conferencing, microphone roof tiles are available, which removes all the wires from the meeting room table and allows you to move the furniture around the room for all meeting layouts.
The simplicity of the tiles being used in the Workplace and in particular meeting rooms, adds a touch of light and brings a little bit of nature inside.
Bringing HoloLens and Workplace Design together
I was lucky enough to be able to try a prototype design by Start-Up Kazendi, a HoloLens which allows the user to select and place furniture around the workplace, creating a completely different user experience for office design.
