Pop up co-working for Sheffield Design Week

Coming together for Sheffield Design Week 

  • Sheffield’s long standing reputation as a centre for manufacturing excellence and design ingenuity makes it a design destination in its own right
  • 30,000+ local residents, national and international visitors were expected for Sheffield Design Week 2015 – a citywide celebration of design in all its forms

What was #SDWcowork about?

Dale Office collaborated with East Midlands Trains to offer Sheffield station rail passengers a free to use, pop up co-working space during Sheffield Design Week. Commuters used the #SDWcowork hashtag to tweet photos and comments about their experience at the station.

Between Monday 15th and Friday the 19th of June, the pop up co-working venue offered refreshingly different spots for travellers to spend a few productive minutes at the start or end of their journey.

The space was located in the main station concourse. It featured a curious and colourful mix of the latest office furniture and accessories designed with the future of work in mind. Travellers recharged laptops and mobile devices as they made use of the space.SDW-09-small

Unique cultural event

As a primary transportation portal and gateway to one of the UK’s most vibrant and creative cities, Sheffield Train Station is a dynamic space in the heart of a connected city.




We were delighted to be a part of a unique cultural event that celebrates creativity and innovation in the north. In addition to delivering #SDWcowork, we hosted a series of talks on Using Design To Improve The Experience of Work.
