IIDA-NY Leaders Breakfast 2008

4.21.08 | If you haven't been to the NYC Leaders Breakfast, it's worth the trip just to see everyone all suited up. But for the bright sunlight and gorgeous water views, it could have been a semi-formal cocktail party affair.

IFI Round Table NYC - 07

4.21.08 | A year ago, I had never heard of IFI- The International Federation of Interior Architects/ Designers but this august organization was formed when interior design was still in its infancy in the United States. IFI was founded in Denmark in 1963 to unite and provide discussion of interior design issues within a handful of European countries. Now, the organization has membership representing 52 member associations, institutions and schools in 45 countries on every continent and, through its membership associations, represents over 25,000 practicing interior designers worldwide. In the U.S., the American Society of Interior Designers is a full member, and several interior design schools are members. Shashi Caan, as an ASID member, is the president-elect of IFI.

4.7.08 | Late Friday. I was sorting through the email. Invitation; a fundraiser. I reached for the delete button. But paused . . . DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS). Dining by Design; food. Allsteel and HOK hosting. (Hmm.) $800 a head. Was I worth it? Hardly, but O.K., I’ll go.

BIFMA Leadership Conference 2008

3.3.08 | To some, “BIFMA” is just a funny way to spell boring, but this year’s Annual Leadership Conference (our first) in St. Petersburg, FL, was anything but. Not only were the presentations at this annual retreat of executives of the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association fit for an audience of designers, facilities managers (or just about anyone else), but, indeed, designers were there to make some of the presentations, and Michael Alin, Executive Director of ASID, was there to represent his organization, as were Mark Strauss, Publisher of Interior Design magazine, and John Rouse, Publisher of Contract. We definitely need much more of this cross-pollination and collaboration, but it is a start.
