Reading University Students’ Union (RUSU) has worked with bespoke furniture suppliers, Design & Contract Furniture to modernise the recently completed expansion of two of the university’s social hotspots.
‘Talking Interiors’ will feature international architects, designers and writers from New York, Paris, London, Amsterdam and Munich who will discuss their own practice and dissect the role of interior design. Forthcoming speakers include the New York-based architect Annabelle Selldorf; German furniture and product designer Konstantin Grcic; Paris-based interior designer Luis Laplace; William Russell from London design consultancy Pentagram; Ben van Berkel of Dutch architectural design firm UNStudio; renowned British interior designers Dinah Casson and Morag Myerscough; and design writer Marcus Fairs.
The Guardian talks of how “Crafts are making a comeback” and how “the UK leads the way in skills such as furniture making” in this fascinating article “Furniture design: a chance for graduates to change tack“. Well worth a read.
