  • Where is the interior design industry going?
  • What are the new and recurring trends?
  • Who/what is disrupting?
  • How do we consider the environment/climate sustainability?
  • Who are we working with/what are their ethics?
  • What are the challenges facing new interior design graduates?

The need to work in a different way has pushed the use of technology in design ten years into the future.  And yet technology is just a tool that enhances a designer’s ability to communicate. You still need the basics – to know who you are as a designer and to have method and vision.  How do you get that balance right?

As designers, we have a huge responsibility to minimise the impact on the planet when we specify.  It is not just about using things that look good, it matters where they come from.  How can we make a real difference?

The pandemic has changed the way our clients view their primary residence. Once they were the base from where they went out to experience the world but now they have become their primary world.   What does this mean for designers?

In this unmissable session, the panel discuss how designers respond to these and the many other changes and challenges we face and talk through case studies where they have been able to make a real difference
