The dynamic nature of design through the past, present and future will be the centerpiece of “Evolution,” the graduation exhibit of the Philippine School of Interior Design
(PSlD) Advanced Class of 2016, slated from September 29-October 31, 2016 at the Square Building, Greenfield District, Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. in celebration of PSlD’s 49wl year, ”Evolution” will take exhibit guests on a journey through a timeline of design trends, styles and designs from past, present, and future.
Mounted in cooperation with Devant, Uratex, Boysen, Hafele, Bosch, Blanco Germany, Gorenje, Dexterton, La Europa Ceramica, Songdream, Nordlux, Matimco, AG Murals, Mity Mike, Larry’s Curtain, Mainline, Fineza, and Ilaw Atbp, the exhibit is set to showcase 24 exquisitely~ designed spaces that represent different time periods and various inspiration from the past, the present, and the future.
Vintage trends and classic designs take center stage in the Past gallery. Showcasing how mid-century design styles have influenced today’s interior design standards, the Past gallery will take exhibit-goers through a trip down memory lane with looks inspired by the 1940s to the 1970s. Booths will capture the essence of illustrious designers from this time period such as Finn Juhl, Eero Aarnio, Alvar Aalto, Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, Hans Wegner, Warren Platner, and Arne Jacobsen.
Meanwhile, the Present gallery breathes new life to timeless design styles and gives mm a contemporary spin. Classic styles meet modern trends in an up-to date gallery that will scuss the eclectic nature of present-day design. Styles such as Tropical, Filipino, Japanese, Mediterranean, Chinese, Moorish, Victorian, and Baroque are presented in an unexpected yet elegant fusion.
One of my favorites in the entire exhibit was the Modern Moorish setup created by Lai Graciosa Buenaventura, Ryanna Beatrice Dalistan, Louricia Earielle Gardiola, Maureen Lutero, Fergelie Marasigan, Patricia Rae Masaoy, and Khristle Nicole Prado. A bold take on lanai design featuring arches, the use of bold teals, a sofa bench, a breakfast nook, and a “floating island” effect.
Giving exhibit-goers a glimpse of what’s to come in design is the Future Gallery. The student designers have conducted thorough research to come up with fearless forecasts on what the future of design looks like based on the trends today. Promising possible trends to be covered include Avant Garde Industrial, Tech and Trendy, Metallic Glam, Rustic Luxe, Eclectic elegance, Organic Opulence, Design Deconstructed, and Funk Art.
