Take a journey through the past, present, and future of interior design at the PSID 2016 Evolution Exhibit. The event showcases the talent of student designers from the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) Advanced Class 2016. With careful planning and extensive research, these students came up with 24 exquisitely designed spaces representing inspirations for the past, present and future. See their ideas come to life with your own trip to the Evolution exhibit.
There are several reasons why you shouldn’t miss the PSID 2016 Evolution Exhibit. First is the Vintage trends and classic designs at the “Past” gallery. This gallery will take you back to memory lane with their design inspirations. Second is the interesting twists given to timeless designs to meet modern trends in the “Present” gallery. It brings us up-to-date with the current designs while showcasing the creativity of our budding designers. Third reason is the fearless forecasts for future design possibilities. It is definitely intriguing to see what they came up with using concepts like Avant Garde Industrial, Tech and Trendy, Design Deconstructed, Metallic Glam, Organic Opulence, Rustic Luxe, Eclectic Elegance, and Funk Art. Aside from enjoying the showcase of designs, the exhibit can also give you new ideas for your next home improvement project. PSID is known for their ground breaking exhibits thereby attracting architects, interior designers, and design enthusiasts in their events.
Here are some of my favorites:
Funk Art – Designed with the millennial bachelorette in mind, the bedroom space features an aesthetic similar to clubs in New York’s Meatpacking District with its bold use of colors, as well as its use of elements such as rustic bricks and black metal, and neon lighting.
Arne Jacobsen – A living room design inspired by the mid-century modern movement of the 1950s and featuring the use of natural materials, especially wood, and an open layout, giving the space an open feel.
Modern Baroque – A kitchen designed for an artistic and passionate couple featuring a mauve, white, and black color scheme, an etched, mirrored ceiling, a coved tufted wall, and the use of black marble.
Organic Opulence – Inspired by the concept of metamorphosis, this lanai design features elements such as the use of unpolished sedimentary rock, boulder, a palette of earth tones, and strategically-placed plants.
Rustic Luxe – A living room design featuring a mix of masculine and feminine elements like brick , barn board, crystal chandeliers, fur, and eclectic accessories and “bringing the outdoors in” through the use of stone and lighting.
Tech and Trendy – A toilet and bath design inspired by the concept of a “secret hideaway” and featuring the latest in bathroom features combined with a muted color palette, and geometric elements.
Design enthusiast or not, this exhibit has plenty to offer. At the very least, one can experience the past, present, and future of interior design through the eyes of student designers. The PSID 2016 Evolution Exhibit is held at the G/F Square Building, Greenfield District, Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City. It runs from September 30 to October 31, 2016.
