A world-class collection of thought leaders in design, including the OOD Award finalists, will share innovative projects from designers and businesses that focus on the quantifiable effect of projects on people in spaces. Projects that measure the outcome of design on the human experience through sustainable, humancentric, and socially responsible design solutions are the future, and the OODC will include the innovators who are leading the charge.

The OODC is an ideal conference for interior designers and those who practice in related fields including facilities management, architecture, lighting design, landscape architecture, and more, who are committed to designing for the best outcome on the human experience.

The OODC is held in partnership with Herman Miller, NeoCon, and Metropolis.
