Explore the Next Space

How will we live, work, shop and relax in the future? New technologies drive innovation at breakneck speed. How can we harness them to better address human needs and global issues? For two full days, Frame Lab is the global stage to explore what’s next in spatial design.

What to expect:

From building sustainably to the future of urban mobility, our 4 content tracks focus on the integration of tech in spatial design, catering to a wide range of interests and specialties.

Upskill with talks, panel discussions and workshops alongside the best contemporary minds in spatial design. Witness content track briefings by Frame editors, experience live judging sessions, and design your own Frame Lab journey. Activations, workshops and cocktail mixers throughout the event drive networking within the interior design industry.

Frame Lab is proudly presented by IBA for the second year running. IBA is the German trade association for the design of work environments.

Intuitive Tech

What challenges lie ahead for designers in integrating the digital and the physical?

Full Circle

Can we design spaces that are environmentally and socially sustainable?

The Co-Economy

Is it possible to foster real collaboration at work, on the road, and at home?

Club Me

How can we create ultimate personalisation without losing sight of communal goals?

Four Topics. Four Tracks.

From incorporating technology to fostering collaboration via the circular economy, Frame Lab 2019 has four content tracks so you can design your experience around your personal interests. Each track explores innovation in retail, hospitality, shows, institutions, work and residences through a combination of talks, workshops, and brand experiences.

Intuitive Tech

Spatial design hugely influences how we experience reality. Combined with technology, entire new worlds can be formed. How will these virtual experiences coexist with the real world? What challenges lie ahead for interior designers?

Full Circle

Can design push beyond the boundaries of sustainability, and achieve real social good? The circular economy is challenging designers and industry leaders to address issues affecting the entire supply chain. Activities that typically generate a deluge of waste and emission are in need of a radical rethink. Will we be able to create and consume with a truly clear conscience?

The Co-Economy

From co-working-slash-living to mobility and SaaS: today’s economy is characterized less by ownership, and more by access. But how does the sharing economy affect interior design thinking? How do designers focus on creating temporal, transitory products and services? And how do we give shape to the social structures that come with these communal set-ups?

Club Me

Fueled by advancements in tech, the one-size-fits-all approach is rapidly being disrupted. But why are so many brands and designers focused on achieving the ultimate tailored experience? While personalization might meet the exact preferences of individual customers, they hinder human connection and threaten privacy. How can designers achieve multilevel environments with tech that provide both private and public experiences?
