A new, free two-day ‘OPEN’ showroom trail event has been launched by the BCFA (British Contract Furnishing Association) and WOD (Women in Office Design) to celebrate the reopening of the Clerkenwell Furniture and Design showrooms.

The event, which is supported by FIS, takes place on 9 and 10 September and will see a host of leading brands showcasing their latest designs and products for the workplace and hospitality sector, with many running their own events during the two days.

It will also feature a seminar programme organised by WOD. Visit https://www.clerkenwell-open.co.uk/wod-seminars-workshops-programme-for-clerkenwell-open-2021/ to find out more about the seminar topics.

Clerkenwell Open will be attended by a wide-ranging audience of decision makers and influencers, including architects, designers, clients/end users and property professionals.

FIS Technical Director Joe Cilia, who will be giving a talk on office acoustics on Thursday 9 September at 1pm at Flokk‘s showroom said: ‘It is a honour to have been asked to help celebrate the reopening of the Clerkenwell showrooms.  Acoustics are a complex subject. It’s easy to know when it’s not right because it’s too noisy or there is lack of privacy or too much disturbance from adjoining spaces. My talk will help explain the properties of sound and four ways of controlling it.
