American Society of Interior Designers to showcase “Design Impacts Lives” mission at annual trade fair for kitchen and bath design industry

(January 2020 -- Washington, DC) -- The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is kicking off 2020 at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), in Las Vegas, January 21-23, with a special pop-up dedicated to infusing health and wellness into design. The installation will be located in the South Hall Lobby, Booth SL002. With humancentric design at the exhibit’s core, the Society aims to encourage a healthy trade show experience for its visitors and guests.

Explains Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, ASID CEO, “The kitchen and bath are two of the spaces that most directly impact our day to day wellness. We’re hoping that our KBIS installation will inspire attendees to incorporate human and healthcentric design philosophies into their practices, proving the power of design to directly affect people’s lives.”

The ASID installation will serve as a respite from the hustle and bustle of the tradeshow floor thanks to its location in the South Lobby. Anchoring the space will be a green wall incorporating plant life into the booth. In addition to adding aesthetic value, plants have been shown to improve spatial air quality. The ASID booth will also have a pop-up to offer healthy snacks to attendees throughout the show. The space will showcase the Society’s offerings for its members and industry partners and will highlight its resources, research, and programming that inspires the industry throughout the year.
