Bill to Speak at NeoCon 2018


Bill to Speak at NeoCon 2018

Join the design community at this year’s NeoCon in Chicago as the conference celebrates 50 years! This year, Terrapin’s Bill Browning will join David Gerson, Vice President of Marketing, Inscape, for a seminar on June 11 called “Beyond Green Walls: How Environments Utilizing Non-Rhythmic Sensory Stimulation Can Create Better Habitats for Humans.”

They will discuss the importance of non-rhythmic sensory stimuli, or the random and ephemeral changes in the environment that connect us to nature. These can include the breeze rustling the leaves, clouds passing over the sun, and other movements that remind us that nature is dynamic. They will illustrate how we can create environments that better support our innate, hard-wired inclinations to be restored by subtly changing environments.

NeoCon serves as the commercial design industry’s launch pad for innovation and runs from June 11-13 at The Mart in Chicago. See the event website for more information and registration.
