Philosophy of Design

 

This month I delivered a talk at the Alzheimer’s WA Symposium called “Not one size fits all. How do we create Meaningful Environments”. Design, like the industry, is changing. Designing environments that are too sterile, too structured and not real just doesn’t work.

Sensory Design is proclaimed as the new “Philosophy of Design” but it goes so much further than just sensory rooms. If you would like any further information please feel free to contact me and we can catch up for a coffee and a chat.

The other exciting news is we have a wonderful new team member on board called Jen.  Jen comes to us with a vast amount of design knowledge and is looking forward to her new challenge. We are all excited to have her on board and her in tray is already full!!

Giving back is always fulfilling and I am proud to announce that along with Materialised Fabrics, we recently donated a collection of bedspreads to a number of Women’s Refuges around Perth. The Refuges do amazing work and, like many organisations, struggle with funding. The wonderful pink bedspreads will be used within the centres and also given to women and families as they get back on their feet and find a new home. Well done to everyone involved.
