Founded in 1935, Perkins and Will pride themselves on designing places that makes a positive difference in the world, with a highlight on social responsibility. The practice work on a huge mix of projects of various scales, recently including a coworking community for non-profit organisations, the new home for a publishing company and reimagining the workplace for a building contractor. Mijail Guteirrez, the lead designer for the MINDFULNESS experience, is currently undertaking research on inclusion in the workplace and the workplace of the future.

Plants for a greener world




I am interested in mindfulness – in its truest sense it involves being actively present in the world and this really inspires me. For this experience I aim to bring a connection with the here and now, through a dynamic design that engages the senses and creates a space for visitors to reconnect with their own selves and the world. As a designer, Mix Design Collective offers me a great opportunity to explore ideas and create an experience beyond the usual constraints of commercial practice. It is a fantastic platform to experiment with materials and products from the product partners, and I love how it challenges me to present these to visitors in unexpected ways.
