IF you are thinking of adding some new decor to your home, you better keep reading.

Sharing his thoughts on TikTok, interior designer, Phoenix Grayrevealed three current interior design trends you shouldn’t partake in.

The first trend he recommends avoiding is whitewash – especially if you’re trying to create them yourself.

The expert said that they are often used without going with the rest of the interiors of the house.

He added: “If you don’t do it professionally and you end up tinkering with it yourself and you don’t know what you’re doing, it looks like a hodgepodge of disaster.

I transformed my dark living room and people can't believe how expensive it looks
We got a quote from a decorator to redo our garage, but it was a total failure.

“Looks like you just ran out of paint and your walls look unfinished.”

Next come the famous Herman Miller plastic chairs, although the expert admits that they look great, he warns that they will give you back pain.

“They actively wage war on your spine if you sit on it for more than ten minutes.”

The latest Phoenix design trend is begging viewers to steer clear of foam furniture, which has become popular thanks to DIYers using foam to decorate mirrors.

He revealed: “It’s literally the expectation of a special owner, you’re literally adding a thick layer of toxic industrial foam on top of furniture that was otherwise fine.”

Viewers couldn’t agree more, with one writing, “Didn’t know foam furniture was a thing and still would love to.”

Another person commented, “foam furniture is literally (almost) future landfill.”

A third wrote: “Oh my god. This foam craft. How could anyone think it looked good?!”

Meanwhile, a fourth added: “omg the whitewashed walls are giving off 90s/00s faux paint/textured walls, please stay in the past! Anything old shouldn’t come back!”

Herman Miller plastic chairs may look nice - but they'll wreak havoc on your back

PHILADELPHIA – Adding bed staging accessories is a great way to make your bed more inviting. It doesn’t have to be expensive. The best real estate agents often have contacts for staging companies and will even help you borrow a bed skirt or duvet. A coordinating bed skirt and comforter will add a wow factor to your bed and won’t cost a lot. Borrowing used bedding is also a great option.


Decorate your bed

Experts recommend certain decor items for bedrooms to help create a relaxing environment for you and your guests. These items can be anything from a favorite hand cream to a reading lamp. They can even be as simple as a beautiful vase of flowers. These items will add a touch of whimsy to your room and a unique feel that will appeal to all tastes.


Choosing a color palette for your bedroom is key to creating a comfortable and relaxing space. While focusing on neutral tones, you can also choose a calming color for you, such as sage green. It’s also a good idea to consider the other decor in your room.

Declutter your room

A bedroom is a place that can quickly become a haven for clutter. While it’s often not the first place a guest will notice, it can become a dumping ground for things that don’t spark joy. According to Kate Ibbotson, Board Member of the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organizers, this should be the last place you declutter.


Start by decluttering your sock and underwear drawers to make your bedroom cleaner. You should put away old socks with holes and unworn underwear. You can also declutter your bedside tables and wardrobes. If you have extra room in your budget, you might consider investing in home decor to add personality.

Dress up your bed frame

Dressing up a bed frame can be a complex task requiring careful attention to detail. Small details can add a layer of sophistication and style. For example, what is under the bed is also important. You can buy a flat sheet with hospital corners for a neat look. Alternatively, you can fluff up your pillows to restore volume.


Dress up your bed with accessories

Incorporating stylish bed linens is a simple way to enhance the look of your bedroom. Interior design and hospitality experts offer advice on the basics of dressing a bed, including choosing sheets and duvets. These accessories have a noticeable impact on comfort and style. You can choose from a variety of styles to create the look you want. Bedding experts also share tips on how to dress up your bed with luxury accessories.

Adding a luxurious blanket to the foot of your bed is a great way to add texture and glamour. A chunky knit blanket is a great choice, but a faux fur throw can also add a touch of luxury. Some designers also use a folded comforter at the end of the bed. This is often topped with a decorative throw. For an elegant hotel look, pair your bed with furniture in complementary colors.

Dress your bed with white sheets

White linens make any bed look fresh and clean. They are easy to clean and go well with most bedding sets. Try using wool dryer balls or lemongrass essential oil on your sheets to get rid of wrinkles. For the best look, lay your sheets over the duvet. Then, fold them over the duvet. This will reveal the nice edge.

Add a pattern if you want to add a splash of color to your white sheets. For example, you can use geometric shapes or floral prints for pillows. Choosing a neutral color for your walls will avoid pattern overload, but if you want a more dramatic look, you can add a patterned headboard.

Dress your bed with pillows

Hotel beds are incredibly plush, luxurious, and sophisticated — and they’re not hard to replicate at home. With a little help from interior design and hospitality experts, you can easily achieve the same look and feel. First, it’s important to get the right sheets. A crisp, clean sheet can transform a typical bed into a luxurious hotel experience. Also, be sure to buy 100% cotton bedding, which will make your bed even more comfortable.

Second, you can upgrade your pillows. While you’re at it, consider using decorative pillow shams and square decorative pillows in front of sleeping pillows. If you have a king size bed you can add extra standard pillows.

Dress your bed with bedding

Interior design and hospitality experts recommend dressing a bed with pillows and throw pillows to create a more unified look. You can try mixing different textures and colors to create an interesting bed set. Also remember that your bedding should be comfortable to sleep on, so keep an appropriate number of cushions and pillows. Some designers suggest having at least three pillows on your bed, one on each side, and a variety of sizes and styles.

The bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so you want to dress it up to set the tone for the whole room. The most effective way to achieve this is to use good quality sheets. A 100% cotton bedding set will look more luxurious than other materials. In addition, it will regulate the temperature, thus avoiding that feeling of heat and clammy that certain synthetic fibers can cause.

Leers Weinzapfel Associates renovates space-age library in Boston https://myrumah.net/leers-weinzapfel-associates-renovates-space-age-library-in-boston/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 21:48:56 +0000 https://myrumah.net/leers-weinzapfel-associates-renovates-space-age-library-in-boston/ “It’s the only Boston library branch that’s semi-circular and the only one with a dome,” says Tom Chung, LWA director in charge of the project. “We were told outside was off limits; that’s how much the public really cherishes the library.

“It’s the only Boston library branch that’s semi-circular and the only one with a dome,” says Tom Chung, LWA director in charge of the project. “We were told outside was off limits; that’s how much the public really cherishes the library. It also works on an urban level, Chung continues, walking along a curving street at the neighborhood’s epicenter, directly across from his green city. The most significant exterior intervention was the addition of an exterior patio, which follows the curve of the building.

The exterior may have been sacrosanct, but the interior was another story. The branch hadn’t undergone a major renovation in sixty years, and its interior layout seemed to struggle with, not accommodate, its unique curvilinear shape. “We let the original design guide our ideas,” comments Chung. For example, the architects, responsible for the exterior and interior design, arranged the light fixtures and shelves in a semi-circular pattern and they placed the traffic and information desk as an object in the very center of the space. “When you walk in,” Chung says, “you get it right away, which is where. It’s easy to navigate.

More Metropolis


In plan, an orthogonal “bar” accommodates the administrative offices of the library. A considerable part of the approximately 16,000 square feet of the building is devoted to a generously sized community hall. “We moved a lot of the back house to the lower level to open up the ground floor more to public spaces,” says Alison Ford, major projects program manager for the Boston Public Library. “It allowed us to have a much larger community room.”

The building’s large curtain wall has been completely replaced, and although the original pattern could not be reproduced, in keeping with the aeronautical theme, some pains are covered with a blue film. At the inner top of the dome is something mysterious – what appears to be a plaster sculpture in the shape of a bird’s wings. “Nobody knows who the artist was,” Chung says. “But we know it helps with the acoustics. This reduces the echo from the dome.

Ford agrees with Chung’s assessment that the exterior was off-limits to design tinkering: “The building’s space-age design influence is valued by the community, so we didn’t want changes take away from him.”

Auburn University Rural Studioan off-campus design-build program, was selected to receive the prestigious Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in the Architecture and Interior Design category.

This is the first time that a university program has won a Cooper Hewitt award in this category. The program — which is part of the College of Architecture, Design and Construction School of Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape Architecture – gives students a hands-on educational experience while helping an underresourced population in the West Alabama Black Belt region. Its primary mission is “the education of our students, coupled with research into sustainable and healthy rural living through both housing and the life systems we foster to ensure the prosperity of our communities.”

The Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum’s National Design Awards program honors innovation and impact and recognizes the power of design to change the world. Launched in 2000 as an official project of the White House Millennium Council, the awards have nine categories and aim to raise national awareness of the impact of design through educational initiatives.

Founded in 1993, Rural Studio has built over 200 projects, including this fire station in Newbern, and trained over 1,200 students in Alabama’s Black Belt. (Tim Hurley)

A multidisciplinary jury of practitioners, educators, and leaders from a wide range of design fields selects each year’s winners.

“We are very proud of the students, faculty and staff at Rural Studio for this well-deserved design award,” said Karen Rogers, Acting Dean of CDAC. “For 29 years now, their efforts have produced magical buildings, projects and places that cohesively and skillfully integrate beauty, utility and sound construction.”

The Architecture and Interior Design category award recognizes an individual or company for the design of public, commercial and residential interior and exterior spaces. Past winners in this category include Ross Barney Architects, Brooks + Scarpa, Thomas Mayne and Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

“We are thrilled with this recognition as it acknowledges the quality of our design work, and we are honored to be honored alongside the roll call of extraordinary architects and designers,” said the director of rural studio and Professor Watt. Andre Freear said. “I hope this award sends the message that everyone, no matter where they live, deserves the benefit of beautiful, dignified and equitable design.”

Current focal points of Rural Studio’s research are innovative practices in housing access and affordability, effective and efficient use of wood, small-scale agriculture, and access to resources such as drinking water. (Tim Hurley)

Freear and other Rural Studio and CADC representatives will travel to New York for the official awards presentation on September 21. .

Founded in 1993, Rural Studio has built over 200 projects and trained over 1,200 students in Alabama’s Black Belt. About four dozen students are invited each year to participate in a context-based service-learning program, where students live and work alongside their neighbors and collaborate to find solutions to problems in the region.

Current focal points of Rural Studio’s research are innovative practices in housing access and affordability, effective and efficient use of wood, small-scale agriculture, and access to resources such as drinking water. To combat housing affordability, Rural Studio goes beyond reducing upfront costs for potential homeowners, including design that maximizes energy efficiency, resilience, and healthy living while providing dignified design that reinforces fairness.

Heading into Sunday’s game against Colorado, the Buffaloes hadn’t lost in 14 straight sets. The Razorbacks responded by handing them three straight losses, which marks 18 straight wins for Arkansas. The Hogs have now reached a record six-game sweep, last achieved in the 2001 season.

It was also Colorado’s first loss this season, and both teams are now 7-1. The Hogs and Buffs received votes in this week’s AVCA poll.

“Really strong performance this weekend. Collectively proud of the team effort. We played really clean today, we struggled to find points against a great team from Colorado,” the team said. “Head coach Jason Watson. “I think we’re in a good position to approach two equally tough non-conference games. I’m looking forward to playing at home on Thursday and Friday.

Junior Taylor Head carried the Hog offense again in Sunday’s Arkansas Invitational Finals with 13 kills and 10 digs for a double-double. She also had a team-best three service aces, which is a new season high. Sophomore setter Hannah Hogue paced the Hogs with 24 assists and 14 digs for a double-double performance as well, her third of the season.

Senior Maggie Cartwright was the difference on both sides of the ball that day with nine kills on 23 attempts for a .304 hit percentage and five blocks. Three Hogs had five or more blocks in Arkansas’ 12-team total, the third time the Razorbacks have posted a season-best dozen blocks. Cartwright and graduate middle tackle Tatum Shipes had five, while graduate Abigail Archibong led Arkansas with a season-high six.

Set 1
Arkansas started the game on a 5-3 streak, but Colorado stayed on the heels of the Hogs and tied the game three times early. The Razorbacks then chained a four-point streak with two kills from Head, one from Cartwright and a solo block from Hailey Dirrigl for a 15-11 lead at media timeout. The Hogs then scored four of the next six runs, which sent the Buffs to a timeout with Arkansas leading 19-13. The break rejuvenated Colorado and the visitors came within one at 19-18, but Arkansas responded and tied a 5-2 run to force the set point. The Buffs called time, but a Cartwright kill ended the set 25-20 in favor of the Razorbacks.

Set 2
The Hogs came out blazing in the second set with a 9-3 advantage to start, which included two aces from second-year Libero Courtney Jackson and a pair of kills from Head. The Buffs called time but couldn’t generate much off the break, and Arkansas quickly went up 14-5. The Hogs added three more runs to double the lead, and Colorado curled up again. The home team went over 20 points with a Dirrigl kill and picked up two more points afterwards for a 10-point advantage. The Buffs caught three of the next four, but a service error gave Arkansas the set point. Colorado recovered one, but a Head kill made the Hogs 25-16 and put Arkansas ahead 2-0 in the game.

Set 3
While the Buffaloes came within one four times early in the third set, the Hogs showed no mercy afterward. A 5-1 run at Arkansas pushed the score to 12-7 and Colorado called a timeout. The Razorbacks won four of the next five runs, including an ace from Head, and went up 16-8. A kill from Dirrigl and an ace from Gillen extended the lead to 19-10, and a block from Head and Shipes took Arkansas over 20. Colorado cut the lead to eight, but three consecutive Hog points, including consecutive Head aces. to end it, sealed Arkansas’ 25-14 set victory and the game’s third sweep in as many days.

Next
A top-five showdown awaits the Razorbacks next as the No. 5 Georgia Tech Yellowjackets come to town Thursday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. at Barnhill Arena in the Arkansas Challenge. It will be the highest-ranked opponent Arkansas has hosted at home since No. 3 Florida in the 2017 season, in which the Razorbacks fell in five to the Gators. The game saw Arkansas’ ninth-best crowd with 1,343 fans. The Hogs will also face the NC State Wolfpack the next day, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online, over the phone, or in person through the Razorback Ticket Center.

Kelly Prim, 17, is a senior at the Washington County Career Center where she is in the Graphic Design and Video Production (GDVP) program and has a passion for photography.

“I was really interested in photography for a long time” Prim said. “I got my first camera when I was 13 or 14. My stepfather bought me a camera from the pawnshop.”

Prim says her stepfather also loves photography and Photoshop and that’s what got her into it. She said during COVID she couldn’t go to school so she was walking around Marietta taking pictures of random things to pass the time.

“And I was like, I really want to do this, but I wanted to take pictures of people, not just random objects,” Prim said. “So once I got to the Career Center, Mr. Palmer (Chris Palmer, graphic design and video production instructor) helped me learn more things for my camera. I knew how to work it but not so well. I just knew how to take a photo, but he definitely helped me learn the camera tricks.

Prim said she started going to Marietta football and basketball games to take photos, she started taking family photos at their events, then this summer she started doing more of photo shoot type photos.

“So me and my friends Elaina (Stiers), Kendall (Maze) and Kodi (Reynolds) get together sometimes and do photoshoots,” Prim said. “I also shoot seniors, and I also asked a few other people I know if I could do a shoot with them.”

Prim lives with her grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle and three cousins ​​in a duplex in Marietta.

“It’s a lot of drama” Prim Jokes. “It’s a duplex so my aunt, uncle and cousins ​​live on one side and me, my grandmother and grandfather on the other. It’s a lot of drama but I love them all.

Prim hopes to follow her passion for photography in college, either at Bowling Green University or Ohio University, where she would like to major in photojournalism. Bowling Green does not offer a photojournalism degree, it only offers a journalism degree with a minor in photography, but does offer an interior design program.

“It has also interested me for a very long time”, Prim said. “Ohio University has photojournalism as a major, so I’m definitely taking that, but it’s more ‘Which one do I really want to go to?'”

In her spare time, Prim enjoys shopping, camping in the garden, reading WWII and Holocaust documentaries, and going to the beach with her family.

“We go to the beach every year, we go to the Outer Banks (North Carolina),” Prim said. “I literally know the Outer Banks like the back of my hand. We go there for a whole week and I love it so much. It’s so pretty, and I especially love taking pictures there.

Prim says her photographic influences are based on local photographers more than any other.

“I like to go local because it gives me more inspiration” Prim said.

She said MoniKeri Imaging and Cassie Jo Photography were her biggest influences.

Sydney’s One Sydney Harbour, developed by Lendlease is the ultimate project. Three towers comprising 808 residences sit on the world’s most iconic waterfront. Creating a new standard in luxury living in Barangaroo South, the project has been in the making for around ten years.

One Sydney Harbor was designed by luminary Renzo Piano, with interiors managed by Daniel Goldberg’s State of Craft. The directors of Lendlease toured the world ten years ago and were encapsulated by the interiors found at The Shard, which sits among the clouds in London’s CBD.

Goldberg sees his background in architecture as key to his expertise. Working on high-end residential projects across Europe and the Americas, One Sydney Harbor is another project elevated by the work of Goldberg and State of Craft. To develop palettes and material selections for One Sydney Harbour, State of Craft led Sydneyside.

“My team and I explored Sydney and did a lot of research,” he says.

“We went to the Blue Mountains and did coastal walks and tried to encapsulate the energy of Sydney. These experiences and our research gave birth to two palettes.

a sydney harbor

The two palettes proposed for the residences channel the distinct qualities of the port and are built according to four key principles: lightness, ease, authenticity and generosity. One palette (pictured above) replicates the sensory experience of shore walking, with roughly sawn stone floors that are off-white and speckled gum kitchen cabinetry and joinery. The second palette (pictured below) is much more about the sea itself, with a darker, grayer stone with hints of quartz that shimmers, evoking the thought of the occupant walking on water.

Renzo Piano and State of Craft emphasized light and transparency, with openable facades and conservatories also integrated into the design. Goldberg and his team designed the swimming pool, the gym and the wellness area, which oppose each other. The pool laden with green stones juxtaposes the gym, which is clad in wood.

There was no explicit brief for Goldberg to follow, but rather an ongoing process between designer and developer.

“The brief was a dialogue that is still ongoing. It’s like the designer and the client are sparring partners and you’re constantly testing, refining and evolving ideas,” he says.

“There was never a document that captured the file. It was a multi-pronged evolutionary process where things diverged and came together again. You start with spatial optimization and layout, which was a rigorous process. We then moved on to finishes, fittings and details.

Renzo Piano has created a fully glazed facade with low iron glass, which ensures that it does not “turn green” when sunlight hits its surface. State of Craft wanted the interiors to be the supporting act of the sky and the view, with Goldberg’s experiences as an architect putting it prominently.

“We have a team that understands and respects the process and what Renzo Piano has been trying to achieve. We want our interiors to work with the architecture and be an extension of that design philosophy,” he says.

“Bringing the same values ​​to the use of materials and the assembly of things, as well as the interfaces between the interior and the exterior. Things like gardens, lighting, and what you see when you look up. »

a sydney harbor

“There are definitely things where disciplines merge and being able to think like an architect made us realize the importance of integrating services and structure. Understand how things work and how they look.

Given the exclusivity of the address and the inherent luxury of the location, Goldberg felt both a sense of pressure and the need to provide ideal living spaces for future occupants.

“It’s a nice experience (designing interiors), but we realize that we have a big responsibility in the design of many homes. It’s not about creating salable space and working with Excel spreadsheets, for us it’s about creating homes, which is an incredible privilege.

The amplified outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic across the globe has shifted work culture that has transcended commercial space design to focus on employee safety and well-being, creating an emerging need of new-age workplace design concepts. The real challenge for a commercial interior designer is to create spaces that retain the essence of collaboration and social belonging while adapting to new security parameters.

The need to create offices where employees want to come back, where memories linger and that feels like a second home is growing like never before. Brainstorming sessions, product launches, sleepless nights, or celebrating success with the team – office designs these days aren’t just about cubicles or boxed stations, it’s about creating reinvigorated spaces that fuel life. innovation and collaboration.

What defines the future of work? What are the trends that we will see dominate in the workplace in the years to come? It’s impossible to know precisely what tomorrow’s work environment will look like, but trends in workplace design can help us understand what could happen and how it could affect our organizations.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Kunal Sharma, Founder and CEO of Flipspaces, revealed the top design trends for flexible and future-ready workplaces:

1. Collaborative spaces and technology-enabled spaces

The dynamic job roles and burgeoning work queues of new-age businesses have created an emerging trend of designing collaborative spaces in which a single individual can be absorbed in multiple tasks and multiple meetings at once. Employees now want to feel safe about the workspaces they currently work in, but at the same time, they also feel like they’re in a more collaborative and open environment that promotes productivity and culture.

Generation Z are referred to as “Digital Natives” because they were born out of speech and breathing technology. With this exposure, they are more aware and lead their routines with technology. Armed with this knowledge, companies must ensure that their workspaces are now designed with technology that promotes innovation, collaboration, rest areas for employees, spaces for virtual meetings (Zoom/Google Meets) as well as new privacy modules and quiet zones.

2. Focus on light and light sources

Light and light sources play a crucial role in the experience of people working in commercial spaces. Especially when it comes to designing offices, it is always advisable to provide enough light in the interiors. Here, you may need to make distinctions between the type of lighting that would suit the space – such as general/ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting, etc. Not knowing if it’s light or dark outside often leads to a stuffy and claustrophobic work atmosphere. It is therefore important to focus on natural light sources as much as possible when designing a commercial space.

3. Designs to improve employee retention and productivity

With the onset of the pandemic, this had posed some questions as to what the new workspaces would look like once life returned to normal. Although we have seen some innovative working environments emerge, such as the hybrid working model, companies must now adapt to an even more flexible working culture, while trying to maintain and improve the productivity of their workforce. -work. With new briefs companies are now issuing to interior designers for the design and construction of future commercial workspaces; you have to look forward with an overview of your workforce and with a new design perspective.

Considering that the country’s workforce over the next couple of years would be predominantly made up of Millennials and Gen Z, companies must now also look at retention as well as seek to tap into local talent and Build a growth-oriented team rich in functional skills. the roles. Incorporating natural elements into commercial interiors allows your employees to work in a comfortable and invigorating environment. This makes them genuinely motivated to come to work and engage better. When your employee engagement is high, you don’t have to worry about retaining talent within your organization.

Highlighting three workplace design trends that highlight the important elements that make up an “ideal” future work environment, namely adaptive, collaborative and healthy workspaces, Uttamaditya, CEO and Founder of U&D Interiors I, listed the top design trends that can help you stay ahead:

1. The rise of remote work.

2. The need for flexibility and adaptability.

3. The importance of collaboration.

4. The rise of artificial intelligence and automation.

5. The importance of data-driven decision making

6. Increased demand for data privacy.

7. The need to be able to generate quick and effective solutions.

He said, “A new era of ‘work’ has arrived, sooner than expected. Designers have a huge role to play in shaping the future of work. Covid-19 has amplified the discussion about what the future of work entails. We are entering an era where people cannot simply find a job, but rather must find their meaning and their passion. »

Talking about the top design trends to watch out for, he said, “Designers are always keeping an eye out for the latest trends in order to stay one step ahead.” He shared some of the top design trends that will shape the future of work

1. Unique Items – Unique and one-of-a-kind items have become much more common as people want to express their individuality. The brands offer high quality products at an affordable price for customers who want to make a statement with their purchases. To keep up with the latest trend, manufacturers need to be aware of how this new way of buying is changing the way products are sold.

2. Worker Satisfaction – To achieve maximum efficiency and maximize productivity, employers need to pay attention to what makes their employees happy at work. If workers feel unappreciated or undervalued, their overall happiness will suffer. It is important to determine whether workers are satisfied with their salary, benefits, hours worked per week, growth opportunities and flexibility. Providing these factors ensures higher levels of worker satisfaction which, in turn, results in better production results

A growing trend is experience design, which involves designing products, services, and environments with user needs and preferences in mind. Uttamaditya said, “This approach puts the user at the center of the design process and results in products and services that are more user-friendly and enjoyable to use. It also has a positive impact on businesses, as they benefit from improved customer satisfaction and loyalty. For this reason, it’s no surprise that organizations around the world are beginning to embrace experience design as a way to improve their corporate culture and better connect with their customers.”

He added, “With so many organizations using different approaches to experience design, companies need to determine which type of experience design best suits their goals for employees and customers. There are four main types of experience design: passive (the user experiences a product or service without any interaction), interactive (the user actively participates in creating or modifying something), generative (the product can generate new content itself) and Adaptive (a digital interface automatically adjusts based on the given input).

As the lines between our personal and professional lives continue to blur, there is a growing need for products and services that can integrate seamlessly into our daily lives. The popularity of subscription models will continue to grow as they offer more flexibility and convenience.

Uttamaditya said, “AI and automation will play an important role in increasing efficiency and productivity, while allowing employees to focus on higher value tasks. Employees who have successfully transitioned from one industry to another have developed critical skills including adaptability, creativity and communication. Collaboration between industries is essential; it’s no longer about what your business does, it’s about how you do it.
