The International Federation of Interior Architects & Designers has anounced that World Interiors Day will take place on the 29th May 2010.
This year’s theme, 10% for 90% is inspired by the 2009 IFI Design for All Award Winner, 10% Project, run by the Greenside Design Center, South Africa. The 10% project is an initiative that devotes 10% of the college’s annual notional teaching and learning time to community-based design intervention projects. This translates into the college “donating” four weeks of the formal curricula to community development, with the involvement of Interior, Graphic & Multimedia Design students as well as academic staff.
This May 29th we ask you to please take the time to consider 10% for 90% in keeping with IFI’s mandate to improve human living conditions through the improvement of the built environment. World Interiors Day is an international event created to provide an occasion to highlight the merits of the interior professions and their impact on the quality of life. It’s a day to actively engage professionals, design enthusiasts and the public at large to explore their creativity, imagination, vision and passion in recognition of the role of interior architecture/design in our society.
World Interiors Day is not a centrally organized event; rather, it is organized on a local level by individual interior designers all over the world. The main goal of World Interiors Day is to direct public attention towards the profession of Interior Architecture/Design, to enhance knowledge and understanding about the profession, and to encourage cooperation between professionals.
