Highlights

Traditional campus models remain the dominant support system for fostering university education. However, as the future of learning moves beyond physical space, educational buildings should incorporate a varied way of learning: balancing digital with physical, accommodating different class sizes and group-based learning, and even distance learning that can happen anytime, anywhere. Agility and flexibility are therefore integral to the design approach to campus buildings today. #unstudio #benvanberkel #architecture #unsknowledge #campus #campusdesign

A compact campus, consisting of single or connected sets of buildings, is designed to house a mix of faculties and learning spaces in a space-efficient way. This organization changes the conventional way of learning by encouraging collaboration and co-creation among students and faculty, resulting in knowledge sharing. #unstudio #benvanberkel #architecture #unsknowledge #campus #campusdesign

Campus furniture, beyond aesthetics, should actively promote learning, collaboration and co-creation among students and faculty members. Their design therefore requires a high degree of flexibility, allowing for group or solo work, space-intensive or space-less project work, as well as distance learning.

A blue space for reflecting: Stress-related illnesses are on the rise, fueled by long working hours and an addiction to our personal devices. In the face of seemingly insatiable demands for productivity, we must remember to pause – to allow ourselves to reflect on our values, our ambitions and our being. At this year’s USM booth for Salone del Mobile, we provide a series of repeated mirrors within the @USM modularfurniture Haller system where visitors can observe and contemplate their changing reflections within. #unstudio #usmfurniture #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign #makingplaces #usmmodularfurniture #milandesignweek #unsfutures

A red space for learning: The ability to continue developing skills over our lifetime is paramount to stay relevant in the face of automation and AI. At this year’s Salone del Mobile, we’ve created a red Haller piece within the @USM modularfurniture stand in which workshops and group learning sessions can take place. Inside the shelves, 3D-printed algorithmically generated objects are placed, allowing visitors to engage with the learning process through which we designed this year’s booth. #unstudio #usmfurniture #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign #makingplaces #usmmodularfurniture #milandesignweek #unsfutures

A yellow space for meeting. Whichever way you look at it, the complex problems that our societies face today can only be solved by collaborating with fields different to our own. Although it will become increasingly easy to communicate entirely through virtual devices, human-to-human interaction in physical space remains crucial. #unstudio #usmfurniture #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign #makingplaces #usmmodularfurniture #milandesignweek #unsfutures

A green place for growth. Biophilic design strategies are important when designing places that people will want to live and work in, as well as the places in between. A healthier environment that improves our wellbeing keeps our minds and bodies energized, which in turn makes us more productive. As a furniture system, the @usmmodularfurniture modular system is a framework that can support the infrastructure to grow indoor plants. #unstudio #usmfurniture #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign #makingplaces #usmmodularfurniture #milandesignweek #unsfutures

The Making Places booth design for @usmmodularfurniture is also a collective process, where visitors are invited to cover the stage with custom-made stickers, designed by the UNSFutures team and PINC graphic design, which show a playful perspective on the USM system’s classical geometry.

Where is the boundary between home and work? Over the past year of research, UNSFutures have identified four conditions that will become increasingly important for the future of work: Growing (Healthy environments), Meeting (Human-to-human interaction), Reflecting (Mindfulness & wellbeing) and Learning (Re-skilling to keep pace with machines). For Making Places, we have interpreted these four topics into the design of four large USM Haller pieces, presented at Milan Design Week by USM Modular Furniture. Explore the booth for yourself at Hall 20, A07/B06. Link in bio. #unstudio #usmfurniture #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign #usmmodularfurniture #milandesignweek #unsfutures #makingplaces

The @usmmodularfurniture booth build is now well underway in Milan at Salone del Mobile.

Say hello to Huey in our stories! #unstudio #benvanberkel #usm #usmhomework #usmfurniture #isalone2019 #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign

At this year’s Salone del Mobile, our UNSfutures team will once again pair up with Swiss furniture brand USM to design their ‘Making Places’ Stand: a playful installation that investigates a third space between home and work. Catch the @usmmodularfurniture booth next week at Hall 20, booth A07/B06. #unstudio #benvanberkel #usm #usmhomework #usmfurniture #isalone2019 #salonedelmobile2019 #boothdesign
