EDITORIAL

A Softer, Gentler Workplace

Any great workspace results in employees who are engaged,
happier, and healthier. We kickoff our workplace issue by examining
several projects that reflect the current state of designing workplaces.
Our cover story features media company Awesomeness, who
enlisted SOM LA to design its Santa Monica, California, office with
Gen Z and Millennials in mind, presenting a workplace that doubles
as a stage set where everyone is always "on." We also visit the offices
of global beauty company Fresh, designed by TPG Architecture,
which demonstrate a true designer-client collaboration that resulted
in a contemporary space that also honors the brand's beginnings
more than 25 years ago. We also look at Studio O+A's design for
venture-capital firm Sapphire Ventures, which uncovers the softer
side of finance. Designed for super flexibility, this workspace
creates a warm welcome that feels more like home than an office.
Whenever I talk to a designer or manufacturer about
the changing workplace, the conversation inevitably comes back
to amenities. We've definitely evolved from simply having a $2,000
coffee machine as an office perk. Check out our feature on how
amenities are evolving in today's workplace-with amenities like
whiskey bars and rock climbing as a way of community building.
Continuing our coverage of the outdoor office trend, we
preview Todd Heiser and Gensler Chicago's designs for the NeoCon
Plaza, a new outdoor amenity space that spans the length of
The Mart's South Drive. (Todd and I will also have a conversation
on Monday, June 10 at The Mart (M128) about this hot topic.
Please come!)
We also have in this issue products galore-with highlights
from Coverings, ICFF, and HD Expo in addition to previews of what
you'll see at NeoCon and GlobalShop. In keeping with our "softer
workplace" theme, we take a closer look at the design process of how
some textiles and carpet come to market-deconstructing Patcraft's
latest collection, which exposes the raw elements of the carpet's

construction, and tracing the process between a stellar collaboration
between Wolf-Gordon and Dutch designer Aliki van der Kruijs.
Finally, we celebrate some birthdays! Davis Furniture is
75 this year, and we look at their company's history to understand
how they became leaders in the contract market. And, on the eve
of IIDA's 25th anniversary, executive vice president and CEO
Cheryl Durst talks about how seismic shifts in technology, social
change, and demographics are impacting people, and how the design
community should be focused on how their work can help people
grappling with these changes. Community is key in 2019, and
how we design for everyone, especially communities in need,
and how we improve the profession of our design community
are conversations that we need to continue to have.
Healthcare Environment and Interior Awards
For readers who design healthcare, remember that you have a month
to enter the Healthcare Environment Awards, presented by Contract
in partnership with the Center for Health Design, with a deadline
of July 13, 2019. The winners are published in Contract and honored
at the Healthcare Design Expo & Conference, which will be held
in New Orleans in November.
Entries are also now being accepted for the 41st Annual
Interiors Awards-a celebration of the best designs in the commercial
interiors community each year. The deadline is Sept. 11, 2019,
and winning projects and an annual Designer of the Year and Legend
recipient will be honored at the 41st Annual Interiors Awards
Breakfast on Jan. 31, 2020.
Good luck to all who enter and see you soon at NeoCon!
Sincerely,
Paul Makovsky
Editor in Chief
