With the latest issue of designspace out we delve into the latest issues.
April 1st, 2010
What is the essence of good design? The modernists would have us believe that true design is all about function, asking: How can we create a world that works better?
On the other hand creativity is key – fun, playful colours, out of the box ideas make interiors dynamic and stimulating for the people who spend time in them.
And of course there is the environment – interiors, products and systems should, and increasingly do, take sustainability into consideration, reducing energy, re-using materials and planning for end-of-life.
The latest issue of designspace explores the world of carpet tiles, and how they are successfully used to define space in interiors, providing zoning and wayfinding solutions.
Hard-wearing and easy to install, InterfaceFLOR products are leaders in the field meeting practical needs. Creativity abounds in the new Colourspace collection by InterfaceFLOR, which takes cues from popular culture to make interiors vibrant.
Read about how interiors can provide wellbeing in libraries, visual stimulation in health care interiors and playful, eye-catching designs in hospitality spaces, just to name a few.
And sustainability, one of the core principles at InterfaceFLOR, is illustrated through the new Shanghai showroom, which used recycled and reclaimed materials signifying InterfaceFLOR China’s commitment to sustainability.
With a new section, profiling your colleagues – interior designers Joel Sampson, Ella Lee Cansdell and Cecilia Kugler – the latest issue promises to offer plenty of inspiration for designing space.
