Jeremy Myerson: Well worth listening to

Firstly – he’s an unquestionable authority in the field of workspace design and inclusive design. Secondly – he’s a researcher, author, lecturer, initiator of projects on an international scale. Thirdly – he’s an advocate of a holistic, integrating approach to design and creation of products, services and systems. There will be an opportunity to meet Jeremy Myerson online – listen to his lecture, get answers to your questions… and even – if you are lucky – win a trip to London, visit the local Herman Miller showroom and have lunch with Professor Myerson.

The professor’s open webinar, organized by Bakata and the Herman Miller brand on April 7, 2022 at 1 PM, is entitled “A History of the Workplace and Where It Goes Next”.

In his lecture, Jeremy Myerson looks at the future of workspaces through a lens of the historical development of the modern office. From the first management models, to social democratic ideals and the rise of the web, each stage of the evolution of the workplace provides the basis for investigating what will happen next – as the world adapts to new, hybrid models. Conclusions and evidence will be drawn from the research conducted by Worktech Academy – the world’s fastest-growing global network of experts and platform for sharing knowledge and good practices. The attitude of Worktech Academy members is expressed in their holistic approach to specific issues and progressive thinking, covering several key areas: people, place, culture, design, technology and innovation. Topics are considered from different angles: practice, research, leadership, business tools, and industry trends. All this – when integrated – can give you an advantage over the competition. It makes sense as long as it’s people-oriented.

The meeting is sure to be inspiring. Although virtual (but in real time), it will be starred by someone who has written more than 20 books, and during his decades of professional work has conducted a lot of research in various design areas. He was the founder or co-founder of i.a. Design Week magazine and The Helen Hamlyn Center for Design – innovation incubator at RCA (Royal College of Art) in London.

Professor Jeremy Myerson is a British scientist, one of the most outstanding international researchers and authors writing about design, technology and innovation. He is the director and co-founder of WORKTECH Academy, a global network of culture and workplace experts, Professor Emeritus of Design at the Royal College of Art in London, and visiting professor at the University of Oxford.

He has published several influential books. His most recent publication in this field, Unworking: The Reinvention of the Modern Office, will be released in summer 2022 by Reaktion Books. His well-known and respected titles include e.g. New Old: Designing for our Future Selves, Life of work, Time & Motion, Space to work – New office design or The 21st Century office and International Lighting Design.

Jeremy Myerson sits on international advisory boards of design institutes in South Korea, Switzerland and Hong Kong. He has been named by Wired magazine as one of the UK’s 100 most influential digital influencers. In 2016, he received an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art for his work on design research.
