Sustainability Trends Impacting Your Business | ASID & BIFMA Design Trends Series

Description

The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) continue their collaboration to bring you valuable insights from industry experts with the 2024 Sustainability Trends in Interior Design. This moderated panel discussion will explore findings from Design Research by ASID featured in the ASID 2024 Trends Outlook and ASID Impact of Design Brief: Climate, Building Resiliency, & Human Health. 

Almost two-thirds of Americans report experiencing an extreme weather event in the past year, and most Americans support making changes to reduce the effects of climate change, but not at the expense of altering American life. Beyond extreme weather events, interior designers now need to consider designing for warmer summers and everyday thunderstorms. Meeting client expectations while also incorporating more resilient strategies can be complex, however, the design process should adapt to respond to changes in our climate. Hear from design, research, and furniture leaders as they share strategies on how designers, manufacturers, and facility managers can address the implications of these issues. 

Part of the BIFMA Learning Monthly Series, this live virtual learning opportunity is open for all to attend including BIFMA and ASID members, designers, buyers, educators, and anyone interested in sustainability in the built environment. There is no fee to attend.
