Specifying for Bathroom Accessories

The CPD discusses the factors that designers need to consider when specifiying for bathroom accessories for commercial projects – the base material, the chrome plating or finishing specification and whether the product has been designed for the purpose it will be used for. It looks into each of these factors; at non- ferrous materials, the chrome plating service conditions are more closely at Service Condition 2 which is required for bathrooms, the testing is required to check these service conditions and other design features required for products in this setting.

From Office To Everywhere

The challenges of 2020 have precipitated many questions about the purpose of the workplace. Why go into the office when you can avoid the commute and stay comfortable and productive at home? Why maintain corporate offices when you can instead support distributed work and save money on real estate? Even pre-pandemic, organisations were asking these questions—and COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the conversation.
Herman Miller have been preparing for this new way of working for a long time. Now they want to help you further explore the shifting purpose of the workplace and gain a clearer perspective on why the office will remain relevant far into the future.
