Product & Design
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
Leonardo Da Vinci
At this year's Business of Design Week, a round-up of award-winning designers will discuss how design thinking and innovative products have helped their careers and businesses thrive.
Participating speakers include a pair of celebrated Stockholm-based furniture makers, Fredrik Färg and Emma Marga Blanche of their eponymous design firm Färg & Blanche. They will discuss the inspiration behind their otherworldly decor pieces, including their Coat chair, inspired by the classic silhouette of men's suits, and the hand-made Dark Layer cupboard influenced by the beauty of circular growth rings found in the cross-sections of tree stumps. Färg and Blanche will also speak about how their design focus has helped them build a creative, successful brand.
Fashion & Design
"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak."
We're not ready to say who's coming to speak about knits, prints and threads at BODW this year, but rest assured they're all going to have international reputations for being the best at what they do. From less-is-more minimalism to funky, eclectic weekend wear, the guest speakers at our Fashion & Design seminars will discuss the do's & don'ts of creative design, and tackle topics that fashion magazines, style bloggers and budding brands shy away from, such as how to build a commercially successful operation and brand without losing the creative spirit that inspired the label. Stay tuned for updates on which incredible tastemakers will be speaking at BODW: we're sure you'll like what you see and hear!
