Event description

Description

Mass production and globalised design no longer mean forgoing individuality. Innovations in technology and seismic changes in consumer habits have come a long way in the past few years, meaning consumers expect much more control over the design of their possessions. To explore this fascinating and rapidly evolving topic, It’s Nice That has partnered with IKEA to co-host an evening event titled 'The future of design: How personalisation is on the rise for the mass audience', exploring how personalisation on a mass scale might impact the role of designers.

The event in Shoreditch, London on 2 May will feature a panel of leading creatives and experts on the subject, including British designer Tom Dixon, Bethany Koby from Technology Will Save Us, Unmade’s Kirsty Emery and IKEA’s head of design Marcus Engman, speaking about how customisation in various areas of the industry will change what, and how, we consume design. The four speakers will share insights from their sectors of product, furniture, toy and fashion design, and discuss the importance and prevalence of personalisation and how it’s affecting design methods.

This event is currently sold out, but more tickets will be available in the second release later this week.
