About Tash

Tash joined Peldon Rose five years ago, bringing knowledge of the furniture and lighting sector and over 14 years of design and build experience to the world of workplace design. In her current role as Senior Project Designer, she’s responsible for the interpretation of client briefs, taking design elements and requirements and translating them into a fully developed concept design proposal. Her holistic approach to design ensures that plans explore all details of a design.

With a strong belief that good design should be transparent, Tash looks to develop human-centric concepts that inherently support the needs of users, by observing current working patterns and challenging the use of space. Her passion for inclusivity and sustainability shines through her designs, supporting clients as they consider the needs of all employees and creating accessible spaces that foster diversity and bring the best out of all office workers. Tash is proudly a member of the Sustainable Design Collective and has featured in Property Week and Women in Office Design.

Ahead of the event, Tash caught up with the show to share insights for a speakers Q&A: How have you been using sustainable products and implementing sustainable designs in their offices?

“As designers we should be questioning every product choice we make, designing out waste wherever we can and thinking about the entire life cycle of each and every specified item. Sustainable design also encapsulates how flexible and adaptable a workspace can be as well as what material is chosen for a worktop, for example. Reducing waste (and therefore carbon) is important on any fit out and there are many ways this can be achieved – from flooring take back schemes to furniture reuse/rental offerings. Sustainability should be on the forefront of every supplier and installers mind too, connecting the entire chain from design to build and then throughout the entire products life cycle.”
