Knoll to Sponsor IDC Symposium in Toronto

In celebration of its 80th year, Knoll sponsors and will host a welcome evening for the inaugural IDC Symposium

Knoll is pleased to serve as the presenting partner sponsor to the inaugural IDC Design Symposium in Toronto. The symposium, themed The Value of Design Thinking, connects leaders from the design, business and media community to highlight and explore how quality design lends to a greater good – a better, more productive society with sustainability in mind.

The symposium consists of numerous panel discussions, guided design tours, an awards gala and a breakfast hosted by IIDA and IDC, emerging professionals programs and conference keynote speakers. Together the IDC program will explore how design thinking, defined as a solution-based method of thinking, can enhance the value of one’s own work and wellbeing.

“Design is inherently about the future, tackling problems to come,” states Susan Somers, Vice President Knoll Canada, of the symposium.  “Since 1938, we’ve pioneered how people interact with their environments. IDC’s inaugural design symposium, The Value of Design Thinking, considers design thinking and sustainability to solve today’s problems and push boundaries.”

The IDC Design Symposium spans three days this Fall from September 17 – 19. To kick off the symposium, the Knoll Toronto Showroom – located at 109 Atlantic Avenue, Suite #200 in the Liberty Village neighborhood – is hosting a welcome evening for IDC attendees on Monday, September 17th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.

Registration for the IDC Design Symposium is now open here
