AMSTERDAM – Spaces that heal. Wellness at work. Shows in stores. Phone-led worlds. Biodegradable buildings. Discover all these and more at Frame Lab: The Next Space on 21 and 22 February 2018. An immersive blend of talks, workshops and multisensorial exhibitions organized in collaboration with interior business association IBA, Frame Lab encapsulates the live judging of the Frame Awards nominees as well as the Awards Show on the evening of 21 February.
The future of the spatial design world will be explored from four different angles in the Me Lab, We Lab, World Lab and Wellness Lab.

Over the two days, a long list of influential speakers will share their perspectives in the different labs.
