Along the same line of humanism is the Wellness movement in design, integrating all our senses into our interiors.  Many interior designers love the WELL rating system, because it deals with complex human needs and addresses the seven requirements - including circadian light, clean air and water, and organic food.
 
We will explore how WELLness embraces human needs, as well as those of the client, and discuss the urgency of a new understanding of collaboration.  Without a committed client, these programs don't work. WELLness requires HR, CEO, leaders with vision to develop policies that support healthy behavior and designers' vision.

Rachel Gutter, Chief Product Officer, International WELL Building Institute
Rick Cook, Co-founder, Cookfox Architects
