Culturally Specific Office Design
Lead Interior Designer Rebecca Ruggles at Neocon

Airbnb has more than 25 international offices and a growing global presence, but how can designers create culturally sensitive standards that also adhere to global, corporate functionality standards? In an ever-more connected, global culture, how do we preserve and celebrate what makes us unique, but still bring people together and help them bond over common corporate culture?
Lead Interior Designer Rebecca Ruggles will review case studies from Airbnb offices in North America, Europe, and Asia to illustrate how some elements of human nature and design psychology are universal, while others are more culturally specific.
