Revisiting the Workplace Design Show, London.

The London Workspace Design show was an amazing experience. Given that it was Exubia’s first time attending, we made quite an impression. For one thing, our plants were a big hit, earning our stand a top 10 rating from the event organizers. Additionally, they played a significant role in The Sustainability Talks Area by BDP and the Workplace Design Talks Area by Gensler.

Amidst the busy atmosphere, one thing stood out: sustainability. It was inspiring to see everyone dedicated to creating eco-friendly workspaces. Since the show, we’ve become even more committed to integrating sustainability into all aspects of our work. We’ve already made some changes internally, like using peat-free soil and considering electric vehicles to replace our vans. However, we’re always evolving in this area, encouraging our staff and customers to be mindful of their actions.


Let’s talk about the designs:


This year, we wanted to highlight the strong influence and power of biophilia in the workplace.  Our presence at the show wasn’t just about our products or services; it was proof of our commitment to sustainability. For that reason, we gave attendees the chance to share their thoughts and experiences. Take a look:

Gensler Workplace Design Talks

Curated by Gensler, the talks focused on how design takes inspiration from nature to create a nurturing environment. Hunters have partnered with environmentally conscious firms to bring this concept to life. Our main focus was on captivating biophilic design, seamlessly blending live plants with innovative moss elements. Additionally, a 66-metre custom-printed fabric backdrop by Kvadrat, featuring a forest design and crafted by Waverley, added to the ambiance.

The flooring is supplied by Material Hangout and Mogu, known for their eco-friendly solutions, reinforcing the Design Talks Lounge’s environmental commitment. Furniture was carefully chosen from Andreu World, known for sustainability, with products made from biodegradable and compostable materials. Afterwards, plants were redistributed to extend their lifecycle and reduce waste, promoting sustainability.

BDP Sustainability Talks

Designed by Lisa Pasi, a graduate interior designer from BDP, the talk centred around the theme of “Bloom.” Pasi’s concept emphasised the interconnectedness between humans and nature. By incorporating natural materials like wood and stone, the design aimed to promote a culture of sustainability in workspace design. Consequently, it was noted for showcasing the positive impact of these materials on mood and well-being.

As a result of the show, we carry with us a renewed sense of purpose and passion for sustainability. All in all, the future of workplace design lies in embracing nature’s wisdom and integrating sustainable practices at every turn. And for Exubia, this journey has only just begun.
