The Design Gym Weekend Workout with Inscape


We recently hosted The Design Gym for one of their Weekend Workouts at our Inscape NY showroom.

The Design Gym was created by a group of friends with a mission to build a community of skilled problem solvers through a workshop-driven design thinking curriculum.  Their Weekend Workout  teaches design thinking methodologies. Attendees are paired with design professionals and given a real client design brief to hone their skills.

Our weekend kicked off Friday night with some mingling and a crash course in how to think outside the box. Saturday was a deep-dive into the methodology using a familiar design problem. Our groups thought about ways to enhance the experience of an urban park. On Sunday, Inscape was the client!  We presented the class with a challenge to create a workspace for a midsize company in the year 2020. Although the teams were untrained in product design and unfamiliar with creating innovative product applications, they came up with many provocative ideas that will keep our developers busy for a long time.

We were honored to have to spend the weekend with such a dynamic, intelligent and engaging group. Check out their full program and schedule of upcoming events:
