Joe Rondinelli IIDAShepley Bulfinch celebrates World Interior Design Week

Although the design process is defined in phases that follow a linear path design itself isn’t. This is especially true in a project’s early stages. Design in its early stages requires exploration and we embrace the collaboration across the disciplines to achieve our design goals.

The art of creative problem solving has always been based around knowledge. It is this creativity born from the interior designers’ knowledge that informed the model of our internal practice of having the interior designer team integrated instead of in a stand-alone ...[more]

Wednesday, 19 May 2010

I’ve attended many trade shows over the years and the Lighting Expo in Frankfurt in April was one of the most extraordinary examples of product design innovation I’ve seen.
