Iken has launched the second Workstation of the Future design competition, due to be judged in August 2008.
Mathew Power, general manager of Iken, welcomed more than 100 guests to officially launch the initiative at the Iken showroom in Sydney, announcing the distinguished judging panel to include Brandon Gien from the Australian Design Awards, and Stephen Ballesty from property and construction cost consultancy, Rider Levett Bucknall.
Iken offers a unique opportunity for architects, designers and students with this competition – to conjure up the office of the future. Prizes include a trip to Orgatec, Cologne in Germany, and a visit to Okamura in Japan.
Since its inauguration in 2006, the award is recognised as one of the most exciting design competitions in the country.
