2:30PM CEU: Sherwin Williams 2018 Colormix Color Forecast

Like blue meeting yellow to make green, every color is a collision of influences — every palette a fresh chance at community.

This course will take the participant on a visual journey with stimulating imagery, factual statistics, and perceptive research that supports the 2018 forecast for color and design trends. We will explore the drivers influencing future color and design trends that include global, technological, historic, psychological and economic factors with specific information on the three different color palettes, named SINCERITY, CONNECTIVITY, AFFINITY.



4PM CEU: Teknion Office Planning for Acoustics

Office Planning for Acoustics addresses the need for optimizing the acoustic performance of the workplace and describes how a positive acoustic environment can increase productivity, comfort and satisfaction. The presentation looks at ways to reduce distraction, increase privacy, or improve collaborative work environments through different methods of blocking, absorbing or covering sound. Basic principles and terminology used in acoustic planning will be covered in this presentation.



5:30PM CEU: Knoll Immersive Planning 

Our study revealed a workplace that is dramatically different than one of just a generation ago. Knoll found five significant factors that contribute to a new way of working and drive new thinking about the work environment.

Group-based work is the norm
Hospitality and residential influences enter the workplace
Despite new alternatives, office is still home base
Empowered by choice, employees make the workplace their own
Management of the real estate asset is tighter than ever

Based on our findings, we identified a new way to think about space. Defined as Immersive planning, the model not only blurs the lines between work, life and play, but also individuals and teams, primary workspaces and activity spaces, and owned and shared work areas and tools. Comfortable furnishings and fluid boundaries characterize this group-based workplace where the actions of the people themselves define the space. The result: an environment that creates a variety of experiences, transforming at a moment's notice and evolving with use.
