Xiong Yi Presents on the Evolution of the Workplace at Design Shanghai

KPF Director Xiong Yi presented “Work Space – A Changing Concept” at this year’s Workplace Conference at Design Shanghai.

Xiong’s presentation helped to drive conversation around this year’s conference theme: “Reshaping the office experience through design – Flexibility, Empathy, Collaboration, Innovation.”

The conference explored healthy and empathetic work communities, in both culture and physical fabric. Xiong presented KPF projects such as Unilever Headquarters, London, the transformation of a historic structure that places the working practices of Unilever employees at the heart of its design; and TP Link Headquarters, Shenzhen, which reimagines the traditional office environment, by introducing programs that reinforce the company’s culture of collaboration, creativity, and innovation.

Design Shanghai is one of the world’s most prestigious international design events that aims to explore how Eastern and Western design philosophies can work together, featuring 600 companies representing more than 40 countries. Learn more here.
