« The International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) announces World Interiors Day 2016 and the theme “Interiors Intelligence”, to take place Saturday, May 28, 2016.
January 21, 2016 ‒ The International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) and our global community will celebrate World Interiors Day 2016 on Saturday, May 28, 2016.
World Interiors Day is an annual event spearheaded by IFI and designed to spotlight Interior Architecture/Design. The event actively engages professionals, national organizations, design enthusiasts and the general public to explore creativity, imagination, vision and passion in relation to the role of Interiors in society, culture and our future built environments.
With the rapid evolution and general public awareness of design, the Interior Architecture/Design discipline requires a stronger foundation, with a deeper understanding and development of how the built environment affects and shapes humanity. As the IFI Interiors Declaration states, “In the spaces that are important to us, we experience not only a sense of place, but a sense of who we are, and of what we can be. Thoughtfully designed spaces help us learn, reflect, imagine, discover and create.”
While the degree of challenges faced by countries and populations across the global community may differ, the aspirations are invariably the same. This year’s theme “Interiors Intelligence” taps into the comprehensive knowledge needed to continue to bridge gaps in the Interiors profession and to foster a greater appreciation for, and connection between, the built environment and its occupants. It will engender and promote well-being and facilitate human advancement. »
