Indesign was at Interieur to catch all the action with the latest in innovative design from around the world.
“The reactions were very positive. Guest of honour Jaime Hayon stole the hearts of so many visitors with his frivolous design and disarming charm,” says Interieur Project co-ordinator Dieter Van Den. “There was also a great deal of interest in the lectures and exhibitoins. Visitors don’t just want to look at beautiful objects; they want to learn things.”
