Business Architecture Forum: Wooden Interiors
October 17, 2018, 17.00
City of Design, Dunajska cesta 123, 1000 Ljubljana
You are kindly invited to attend Business Architectural forum on the topic of Wooden Interiors, which has been organised by the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology – Directorate for Woodworking and SPIRIT Slovenia – Public Agency in cooperation with Zavod Big and the Association of Woodworkers in Slovenia and some other partners.
Interior design presents one of the most intimate connections between the space and the human body. With a great influence on our well-being through its organizational, material, visual and spiritual impacts of the interior and furniture design, wood offers itself as one of the most versatile, natural and renewable materials.
The Business Architecture Forum will explore the innovative use of wood in interior design by renowned European architects and designers. Even though we live in a globalised world the local traditions and culture of living nevertheless gets inevitably inscribed in to architectural work. Be it either through exploration of traditional local patterns and building crafts or the tradition of wooden buildings allows the integral approach where the line between architecture and interior design merges. The patterns of how we use our rooms will be explored as well as exploring the limits of the wood as a construction material itself. The last but not least architect will show us how to carefully balance the existing architectural shell with the new interior design in order to achieve the desired positive atmosphere of the space.
