THIS IS A PAID PARTNERSHIP IN ASSOCIATION WITH ISTITUTO MARANGONI
As we head towards the eighth month of restricted movement here in the United Kingdom, I’m sure I’m not the only person who has been looking at their home with a forensic eye.
I’ve always been interested by interior design, both at home and as a lifestyle writer, but being confined to quarters for several months in lockdown, and spending so much time working from home since then, has made me really reassess both how I use the space in which I live, and the value of the objects within that space.
There is so much to discover about the power of good design, both of space and of objects and to that end I have been reading so much more, researching designers online, and poring over the pages of interior magazines. So if you’re anything like me you’re going to want to know about an interior design panel talk that is happening THIS Thursday, the 22nd October at 5pm.
Fashion & design school, Istituto Marangoni London, will be hosting ‘Design As Power For Change’ a virtual event showcasing the best of British interior design to celebrate the launch of the newly built facilities at the Istituto Marangoni London campus, in the heart of the Shoreditch Design Triangle.
In collaboration with ELLE Decoration UK and moderated by Editor in Chief Ben Spriggs, the panel talk will host three of Britain’s leading Interior Designers: Lee Broom, Bethan Laura Wood and Mac Collins.
Lee Broom, described by The Financial Times as ‘among the most respected British Talents’, is one of the UK’s leading product designers of luxury furniture and lighting. Designer Bethan Laura Wood runs multidisciplinary studio WOOD, characterised by material investigation, artisan collaboration and a passion for colour and detail. Mac Collins, an emerging designer and maker, focuses on manipulating the materials which he works to celebrate their inherent beauty.
You can join the talk either through a proprietary link by emailing info@taskPR by Tuesday 5pm, using Elle Decoration Event in the Subject line, or by joining the Facebook Livestream at https://www.facebook.com/istitutomarangoni
The talk is one of a series of special events throughout Istituto Marangoni’s network of schools as it celebrates its 85th Anniversary, and promotes its Design Programmes for the 2020/2021 academic year.
