Event Agenda


How does inspiration strike?
The alchemy of new design concepts:

  • Integrating personal aesthetics
  • Thorough market research
  • Keen eye for hot new materials,
  • Textures and finishes
  • Innovation in engineering
  • A new perception of functionality

Drawing, rendering, 3-D printing and models: old skills, new tools: getting to the perfect sizing and scale.

Prototypes: Always room to perfect a product or re-invent it

Is it ever going to sell and how would I even go about it? What is new and attractive about it?

Developing a design individuality, possibly setting trends?

Designing a one-of-a-kind piece for a client's home as opposed to developing a comprehensive furniture collection

Analyzing cost, mini business planning and marketing
