A conversation with Matanee Osatanukroa from our Bangkok Studio and Adriana Graur based in Dubai Studio, we explore the Evolution of Office Interiors in the Age of AI

dwp – design worldwide partnership (dwp): We are delighted to be in conversation with Matanee Osatanukroa and Adriana Graur, eminent designers at dwp. Based out of Bangkok and Dubai respectively, these visionaries are reimagining office interiors using AI. Welcome to both of you.

Matanee: Thank you for having us.

Adriana: It’s a pleasure.

dwp: Matanee, how do you see AI reshaping the office design industry?

Matanee: AI is merging design artistry with intelligent functionalities to create spaces that look good and work smart. For instance, AI facilitates optimal energy use, light adjustments, and intuitive room booking, making spaces truly intelligent.

dwp: Adriana, in what ways is AI elevating office efficiency?

Adriana: AI is remarkably adept at automating routine tasks and enhancing space utility. By understanding employee behaviours and interactions, we can design more intuitive and adaptive work environments that lead to significant cost savings and a more personalised employee experience.

dwp: Matanee, beyond just task automation, how does AI contribute to employee engagement?

Matanee: The magic of AI brings us virtual assistants and cutting-edge communication platforms that obliterate geographical constraints, fostering unimpeded teamwork. Moreover, AI-driven insights offer workspace solutions that boost individual and collective productivity.

dwp: Can you shed light on how AI is pioneering ‘smart’ workspaces, Adriana?

Adriana: With pleasure. AI helps us defy traditional workspace norms. For instance, we can project dynamic 3D data anywhere, transforming a regular room into a lively, immersive work setting that enhances collaboration and well-being.

dwp: It seems like AI is redefining interior design. Matanee, could you elaborate?

Matanee: Absolutely. Today, AI facilitates detailed and vivid 3D visualisations, making the design process more interactive and immersive. AI allows for on-the-spot modifications and a more collaborative design experience, pushing the boundaries of traditional design methods.

dwp: And in this AI-driven shift, Adriana, how relevant do you think the role of an interior designer remains?

Adriana: Invaluable. While AI provides data-centric insights, the innate ability of a designer to interpret and translate client desires into tangible designs remains irreplaceable. AI aids, but the human touch gives life to spaces.

dwp: Sustainability is a hot topic today. How does AI feature in this context, Matanee?

Matanee: AI is a linchpin for sustainable design by smartly managing resources based on real-time needs, thereby minimising wastage and championing eco-friendly practices.

dwp: Any ethical challenges with integrating AI in design?

Adriana: Certainly. We must be cautious about privacy, data security, and potential biases. Transparency and ethical AI practices are non-negotiable for establishing trust.

dwp: To conclude, Matanee, where do you see the future trajectory of office designs with AI?

Matanee: AI is orchestrating a transformation, crafting office spaces that prioritise creativity and human connection. Ethical considerations are paramount, but with AI’s potential, the future is thrilling and promising.

dwp: It’s been enlightening speaking with both of you. AI is not just a tool but a co-designer, and with experts like you at dwp, the future of workplace design seems to be in adept hands. Thank you for your insights.

Matanee & Adriana: Thank you for chatting with us.
