Announcing IFI World Interiors Day (IFI WID) 2019

(celebrations take place throughout the entire month)

Theme – IFI WID 2019
Designing Spaces, Changing Lives

As agents of change, our work impacts the lives of all people. It happens on many levels, including the tangible (physical, functional, economic) to the intangible (psychological, social, cultural). This is ongoing – from fleeting instances, to spanning generations.

An opportunity to explore all aspects of Interior Architecture / Design, for IFI WID 2019 we encourage you to unleash and playfully showcase Designing Spaces, Changing Lives. Anything is possible.

Some of our proposed aspects of exploration for design are:

  • Tangible / Intangible
  • Functional / Innovative
  • Necessity / Pleasure
  • Responsibility / Ethics
  • Power / Empowerment
  • Surfaces / Divides
  • Respect / Validation
  • Tradition / Future

A federation of national associations, with a broad base of institutional and industry membership, IFI exists to uplift, support and connect a profession which elevates life-quality and well-being of all. If knowledge is power, let us take this opportunity to work collectively to acquire and share vital information with each other, to most effectively make the greatest impact on the lives and the built environments of our local communities and the world. Plan to participate today!
