This year’s talks program at Design London will include internationally acclaimed designers Lee Broom, Sabine Marcelis and Patricia Urquiola who will discuss current trends and their creative processes. London-born TV presenter and sustainable design advocate Jay Blades will talk about his new furniture brand which specializes in using materials that are recycled or reclaimed.
Aritco will be hosting a talk on a subject that is not trending, but certainly should be – how designers need to cater to an ageing population. David Schill, Marketing Director of Aritco will discuss domestic design for an older demographic and intergenerational living, and will be joined by Colum Lowe, Director of Design Age Institute who will offer industry insight into this often-neglected demographic. Kyle Scorgie, Project Head at Priestman Goode design consultancy will offer learnings from the transport sector.
The talk will be moderated by design writer and curator Riya Patel and will take place at Magazine London, the main venue for Design London, from 2pm – 3pm on Wednesday 21st September.
If you can’t make the panel discussion, you can still download our two-page trend report Redefining the Home for the Third Age and you will be able to watch footage from the talk on this website very soon.
