Next April 24, within the framework of the Postgraduate Diploma in Interior Space Design. Work spaces, we will receive Justine Kontou, expert in creating spatial experiences and sensory interiors to enhance wellbeing. In the talk she is holding, she will talk about the importance of creating the spaces in which we work, rest and enjoy, since they lead to generate designs that incorporate visual appeal, a purpose, sustainable elements and knowledge of human behavior.
