Talks: I will be chairing the panel discussion Rooms of Our Own at Design Club, 3rd Floor, South Dome, Chelsea Harbour on Tuesday 6th March as part of London Design Week. 11.30am-12.30pm
With individualism fast becoming the design world’s most favourite word, writer Charlotte Abrahams talks to three leading interior designers about how they navigate this rise in personal expression. Sophie Ashby, founder of Studio Ashby, Hubert Zandberg of his eponymous studio and Susie Atkinson of Susie Atkinson Design explore today’s shifting interior landscape, discussing whether design is now driven less by fashion and more by the desire for a curated narrative that reflects who we are. Or is individualism itself simply a trend by another name?
