We are starting to receive postcards for our IIDA Postcard Exhibit, and we couldn’t be more excited to share some of the designs with you!
The postcard above reads, “don’t make something unless it is both necessary and useful: but, if it is both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful,” Arne Jacobson. The postcard was submitted by Matt of Oregon. The one below is a design of an area rug entitled “Daydream,” and was submitted by Elizabeth of Florida. Elizabeth thinks that in the future the industry will make green design a requirement rather than an option.
The top design reads, “to understand the future, you must know the past.” Noella from Texas wrote in addition to her design that, “today’s interest in design, from what we wear to what we watch on TV, is strong than ever. We have the ability through technology, to make anything from faucets to furniture as creatively detailed and unique as possible…”
Kim from California designed the bottom postcard, and she hopes sustainable products will continue to improve and hopes to design interiors that will keep “re-blooming.”
I hope these postcards have inspired you! Even if you agree or disagree with where these students see the future of interior design headed, please send us your thoughts, as we would love to highlight them at NeoCon in Chicago. Thank you to those of you who have submitted so far. We love reading what you have to say! Click on this link for more information and how you can submit. Don’t forget this is open to all students, and that a free 2008-2009 IIDA Student membership is up for grabs!
