2021 Highlight: Make.Work.Space launches at the London Design Festival

When we look back on 2021, our standout highlight has to be the official launch of our work and wellness Micro Offices at the London Design Festival. To introduce our Micro Offices to the world at such a prestigious and internationally-recognised event in the design calendar was a point of pride for the team and the culmination of a year of hard work to design and manufacture the first Micro Office prototypes.

We chose to showcase the pods at Planted in the King’s Cross Design District – the first zero-waste contemporary design show and digital forum aimed at reconnecting people and spaces with nature. Planted promotes design-led brands which seek to improve our tomorrow through cleaner, greener, healthier spaces. It was a good fit for Make.Work.Space, as we seek to provide pockets of privacy and calm that enhance human health and productivity with a focus on wellbeing and the natural world through the use of sustainable materials.

We were in good company in the Natural Living Exhibition at Planted, with so many inspiring, sustainable and innovative design brands as fellow exhibitors, including: Another Country, Benchmark, Iitalia, Anglepoise, Biotecture, ercol, Grohe and HagenHinderdael.

The public response to the Micro Offices

Throughout our three days exhibiting at the London Design Festival, we had the pleasure of meeting with many members of the public, who showed no hesitation in exploring and experiencing our Micro Offices for themselves. These included architects, product designers, young people and a range of members of the public who were keen to chat to us about the concept and specifics of the design. 

Our Founder, Walter Craven, and Design Director, Tim Manson, were on hand to demonstrate how the Micro Offices work and answer any questions, with support from the wider team.

It was invaluable to hear visitors’ ideas about how they would personally use the Micro Offices, from taking virtual doctor’s appointments to podcasting and as a space for people with sensory disorders to retreat to in busy office settings. The list of uses was long and varied and gave us food for thought about the value of the Micro Offices as private, acoustically-enhanced spaces to retreat to in our hectic urban lives. 

A huge thank you to our team, who put in a great deal of work to see our exhibition realised and to everyone we enjoyed meeting at the London Design Festival!
