Reinventing Normal is a series of conversations about innovation, innovative thinking and the business of design in business.

Hosted by Landini Associates, these are conversations with a global intelligentsia who live to challenge what's "Normal."

Episode 04: Reinventing Everything with Tom Dixon

Tom Dixon’s journey to become one of the world’s most iconically recognisable designers has been anything but "normal."

In this episode, Mark Landini sits down with his long-time friend Tom Dixon as he shares his story with us.

Episode 03: The Future of Workplace

Mark Landini and Richard Watson, Futurist-in-Residence at the Entrepreneurship Centre at the Judge Business School at Cambridge University, reflect on great predictions of the past and whether they were posturing or preamble.

The pair consider covid’s acceleration of digital, the likely consequences of the new “work from home” reality on cities and, more importantly, on society’s mental health and general well-being.

Episode 02: Why the Rebirth of ’Local’ is good for Commerce, Community and Good ol’ Common Sense

Mark Landini and guest Barbara Thau, Senior Features Editor for CO—, a New York City-based publications from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, consider the rebirth of community in commerce — is it simply common sense?

The pair get under the skin of why local is so prominent in retail today, what it’ll take to make “local” special again, and how this can be monetised for commerce and community alike.

Episode 01: Do Department Stores Have a Future?

Mark Landini and Global Retail Futurist, Howard Saunders, discuss the relevance of the Department Store in an Internet enabled world and their general decline from imaginative curators to brand slaves; as well as the critical need for their reinvention and what this could look like.
