The Willy Wonka of Design Work environment encapsulates a lot of aspects: workplace culture, team dynamics, the physical space. Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun deals with that last bit. Dubbed the "Willy Wonka of Design," she shares her philosophy on creating a work space that fosters creativity and growth, alongside other experts like Professor Julie Cogin of University of Queensland.
"The physical space is important, but what is more important is the culture and other elements of the work environment. You need people to be able to challenge assumptions, disagree with each other and not just parrot a leader's views."

American Eagle Goes Subscription As the subscription model continues to creep into industries all over the map, clothing store American Eagle pilots a subscription service deemed “Style Drop,” where users pay a flat monthly fee to borrow clothes they can switch out in avoiding closet overload.

Product of the Day
In extra time, we’re digging even deeper into those closets with Clutter, a unique on-demand storage experience. And the Clutter team confirms a SoftBank led $200 million investment in the service used to summon a Clutter crew to come pack up, store, and later return household items. The app can also be used for regular house moving - so you’re covered across the board.
