Designing for the Health-Conscious Office

Interior design today goes well beyond mere aesthetics. In fact, the profession has changed tremendously in the past decade with practitioners being expected to solve complex problems such as encouraging healthy behaviors and creating multigenerational homes and workplaces. Metropolis recently spoke to the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and Randy Fiser, ASID CEO, about their take on the field today and its role in health and wellness. After completing its 2015/2016 Outlook and State of the Industry report earlier this year, ASID was poised to give well-informed answers, backed by recent statistics.
