About IFI World Interiors Day (IFI WID)
IFI WID, a longstanding IFI event, is akin to Valentine’s Day. It is an annual opportunity for all designers and enthusiasts to globally unite through themed provocative celebrations – large and small. IFI WID causes public awareness, recognizing the value of Interiors and all who make built environments.
ORGANIZE. CREATE. PARTICIPATE.
Celebrated globally, IFI WID invites design professionals, students and enthusiasts along with institutions, governments and members of the general public to organize activities and events that bring community members together to explore, learn, discover and create. Physical or digital, anything is possible. Design shelters, address the young or old, consider health, work, learning or rest. Plan a virtual ‘pub’ debate, round table or symposium. Become an activist, make a movie, save our culture and heritage. Your imagination is the limit!
IFI World Interiors Day provides the international community the opportunity to collectively explore a theme, connect with their local design networks, and showcase the value and impact of Interiors at all levels. Plan to participate today!
