As part of the Business Design Week (BODW), The Hong Kong Interior Design Association is co-organising a seminar on “Cultivating a Sustainable and Global Design Culture in Asia”, featuring Shashi Caan, Founding Principal, The Collective, and President, The International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers, Joyce Wang, Principal of Joyce Wang Studio, and William Paley, Associate at Tonychi and Associates, and moderated by Horace Pan, Founder of Panorama and Vice Chairman of Hong Kong Interior Design Association. These world-renowned experts will explore the uniqueness of Asian interior design in the global context, and probe the future direction of the discipline with regards to increasingly pressing environmental concerns.
This seminar is organised by the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI), and is part of the IFI’s Cultural Innovation Design Dialogues (CID) that have already taken place at other design-related events around the world including those in Vancouver, Canada, Lagos, Nigeria and Guangzhou, China. These CID Dialogues are meant to spark conversations on aspects on design culture in the public realm while simultaneously focusing on what is specific to the philosophy, discipline and practice of interior architecture/design. This event is co-organised by the Hong Kong Interior Design Association and the Hong Kong Design Centre.
