Designers’ Wednesday Lunch and Learn

Title: Eyesight: Help or Hindrance? What We Can Learn About Design from the Blind


Ours is a visual world and becoming more so by the hour. But sometimes we use it so much that our four remaining senses—smell, touch, taste, and hearing–become neglected, lazy, and out-of-practice.  Spend an interactive hour learning all about the “neglected “senses and how they influence sensory design—and the work of the interior designer. The presentation will focus on how we can enhance the design of interior spaces, products, experiences, etc. to ensure that all of our senses are adequately satisfied and working harmoniously to optimize the user experience.  For interior designers, this means incorporating overlooked design principles that deliver better, more relatable design, and a more productive, engaged, and empathetic client partnership.
Shop the pop-up holiday offerings from Joseph Kowalski gifts.  Leave the event feeling inspired and ready for the holidays! Lunch and Prosecco will be served.
