Fresh off the press, the latest issue of Indesign magazine has landed just in time for the launch of FRONT. Which is timed perfectly to open up the conversation around our hospitality spaces.
August 7th, 2018
Just how important is a hospitality scene to a community? I’d go so far as saying that, like work, it’s part and sum of our daily lives. It facilitates livelihoods and cultivates local culture. From a designer’s perspective, hospitality spaces must address a mix of complex functions – to host and serve, consume and experience, connect and exchange, work and relax.
Are we nailing the equation? Or does it require an entire re-imagining? In this issue, The Design Relish Issue, we’re joined by special edition editor, Caroline Clements, who offers a fresh take on the hospitality design paradigm.
Meanwhile the Indesign team is excited to welcome you to our inaugural FRONT event, 9–10 August. Taking place at Carriageworks in Eveleigh, Sydney, FRONT puts the emphasis on connecting and socialising through business.
With a particular focus on workplace and hospitality sectors, FRONT cuts back on the frills to present you with the essentials: a place to meet, greet and build your working relationships. Our show space with its ‘activated aisles’ is designed to facilitate bump-ins and key conversations.
We have numerous meeting touch-points, including the Dyson Business Lounge, supported by Living Edge, where you can pull up a seat, grab a complimentary coffee or snack, and use your time to reach out and talk business with the people who matter.
There will also be plenty of thought leadership, debate and knowledge-sharing taking place at the FRONT Design Forum, supported by Gaggenau, which runs over the two days. Register your attendance at www.front.design.
Finally, I’ve saved the best for last. A loud and resounding Congratulations! goes to the winners of INDE.Awards 2018. Together, our winners offer an exciting vision of what Asia Pacific has to offer. Judging by the depth of talent represented here, I can confidently say that ours is one of the most exciting design regions in the world. Bring on the INDEs 2019!
