Konica Minolta

The Future of Meetings


The Client

Konica Minolta Buisiness Innovation Center - London.

The Challenge

Konica Minolta’s UK Business Innovation Center asked us to look into the design principles that would shape the future of meetings. Our goal was to lay the groundwork to establish a set of design principles for improving the meeting experience. Through these design principles we envisioned a concept for the future of collaborative meetings, that involved developing sensing and projection technologies, that have the power for new kinds of interactions and collaborations.

My Role

I was part of a 3-person team that covered all aspects of the design research process: trends and user research, insight mapping, ideation, co-creation, and prototyping.

Methodology

In our aim to establish a set of design principles for improving the meeting experience, we employed several research, ideation, and prototyping tools. Our research focused on three main categories: trends investigation, user research, and co-creation sessions. From the research, we built several insights and design principles.

The Results

We delivered a set of guiding design principles to be used in Konica Minolta’s new workplace hub platform. Through these design principles we envisioned a concept for the future of collaborative meetings that involved developing sensing and projection technologies, leveraging existing Konica Minolta research and development. A video prototyped showed the potential for new kinds of interaction and collaboration.
