Nabil Sabet introduces behaviour-based design at WorkSpaces, Palm Springs
Group Director - North America, Nabil Sabet, joined WorkSpaces in Palm Springs last week to discuss “Rethinking the Open Office”. Highlighting how a behavioural-based design approach can best align business objectives and culture with tangible work environments, Sabet explored the value of spaces that drive the interactions and focus necessary for people to do their best work.
Sabet took the audience on a journey of workplaces through time, examining the current similarities. This was followed by an analysis of the benefits and disadvantages of the open plan.
Introducing M Moser’s approach to behaviour-based design, he outlined the importance of understanding the purpose of people’s activities at work and the desired outcomes. He also emphasised the value shift away from real estate and a “one size fits all” approach to adaptive environments that are designed for flexibility and cycles of user change.
Sharing a range of workplace strategies and project results, including the M Moser New York “living lab”, Sabet addressed the following key themes:
- Scales of space for the extrovert and introvert
- Changing points of beauty
- Bringing clients into the fold
- Digital experience
