IFI World Interiors Day 2021: What Are YOU Thinking & Saying?

Speak Out – Share What You’re Thinking & Saying

May is here and we’re excited to hear what you’ve been talking about! This year’s IFI World Interiors Day (IFI WID) theme of ‘Design as a Global Conversation’ has provided an appropriate framework  given this unusual pandemic year for exploring the varied circumstances and experiences we’ve all been facing in the Interiors discipline and beyond – both challenging and inspiring. Let’s do it together.

As a truly international community, we highly value our differences, as well as our similarities. We are looking forward to seeing what you are saying and how you are celebrating in your unique context.

There is still time to creatively imagine ways, big or small, to explore this year’s theme.

We look forward to you sharing your insights with us!

(celebrations take place throughout the entire month)

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.


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!


The International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) is the global voice and authority for professional Interior Architects/Designers. As the singular Federation of Associations, IFI acts as a global forum for the exchange and development of professional practice, knowledge and experience, along with education, research and design advocacy worldwide. IFI connects the international community to further the impact, influence and application of the design of interiors, promote social responsibility, and raise the global status of the profession. An international not-for-profit, founded in 1963, IFI expands the international network of professional Interior Architects/Designers.

IFI believes in the power of Design as a vehicle for human betterment and productive improvement. IFI recognizes that all people are equal across the world and that well-designed environments help to uplift humanity and civil society. It promotes equal rights and access to Interior Architecture/Design practice, research and education to be granted equally to all who wish to pursue it. This is regardless of race, gender, creed, sexual orientation, cultural heritage and socio-economic background, and not-withstanding disparities brought forth across different regional contexts. That good and quality Design requires to foundationally take into consideration these and other such evolving factors as technological innovation, globalization, economic and political instability and social inequality, as well as holistic consideration of the environmental/sustainable factors.
