What is Interior Design?

The profession of Interior Design is relatively new, constantly evolving, and often confusing to the public. NCIDQ, the board for Interior Design qualifications, defines the profession in the best way: The Professional Interior Designer is qualified by education, experience, and examination to enhance the function and quality of interior spaces. Read the full definition from NCIDQ.

Designers Defining Themselves

Throughout the process the journey of the creative process, designers are constantly defining themselves and redefining their work. We ve culled a few observations from our Members, friends and Board Members. We hope it provides a glimmer of inspiration for you in your work and your life.

Good design combines usefulness with at least one of the following: beauty, comfort, efficiency, economy, or durability .

-Michael Maurer, Principal, The Gettys Group, Chicago

Design is everywhere It touches and affects everyone. Design is human-centered.

-Jack Weber, IIDA, LEED AP, Design Principal, Gresham, Smith and Partners

Design is the expression of the envelope that surrounds you at work, at home, at play, everywhere. It s creating an experience, an emotion, or a story of your surroundings; helping life s functions to be pleasing to the senses while organizing you.

-Jessica Mann Amato, IIDA, LEED AP, President Elect IIDA NY Chapter and Senior Project Manager, NELSON, New York, N.Y.

Design is a series of decisions that result in a series of consequences, good or bad. Good design results from making informed decisions from a knowledge base, realizing that each choice we make has a real and lasting impact on the lives of the people we serve, our communities, and the world at large. It could even be said that, as creators of environments, we are on divine assignment. What an awesome responsibility!

-Vicki VanStavern, IIDA, LEED AP, President, VanStavern Design Group Inc.

Design is a holistic, creative process approach to solving a problem or need. It requires clear definition of need and a good understanding, derived from research, of the physical/functional needs of the solution and where it must serve. In addition, the artistic design influence of scale, emotion, form, materials and color are embedded in what we call cultural content.

-Chuck Saylor, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Izzydesign

Everything is design. It s intrinsic, not just added to a project. From the name of a company, to its branding, and products even the way the phone is answered is a question of design. We, as designers, are problem-solvers for our clients.

-David Galullo, IIDA, CEO, Design Principal, Rapt Studio

-Richard N. Pollack, FIIDA, FAIA, President and CEO, POLLACKconsulting

Design is the fulfillment of ambition, gratification and reward. Successful design is the tuition to immortality through the benefit to others.

-Neil Frankel, Frankel + Coleman, Chicago

To me, design is about the hope that sparks in an insight. an insight that often springs whole from moments of clarity in seeing into a systems’ behavior. an insight that allows others to see and engage, building toward an inventive and useful whole.

-Dave Lathrop, Manager of Workspace Futures Perspective, Steelcase, Grand Rapids

Time flies. I realize I have already been a professional member of the Hong Kong Interior Design Association for eight years. I am much honored to be elected its chairman this year.

HKIDA was founded over 20 years ago, and under the prudent leadership of its various chairmen, the association is now well established. Further developing the association upon this solid foundation will surely be a challenging task. I vouch that with the support of the Executive Committee, sponsors and other parties, HKIDA will endeavor to enhance the well-being of its members and strive for a better future for the interior design profession.

Looking into the future, HKIDA will strengthen its promotional efforts. In addition to publishing our much-lauded members’ directory, HKIDA will also increase its engagement with the general public by conducting members’ works exhibitions and other sharing activities so that people will have better understanding about the professionalism of local interior design practitioners and also garner more business opportunities for our members. We will continue to strengthen our international connections by being involved in the Executive Council of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) and organizing the Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards (APIDA). Following from the success of the second edition of East Gathering in Hong Kong last year, the event will continue on to Tokyo and Seoul in the coming year, and HKIDA members will certainly take part in both events. In addition, uniting local practitioners will be an important focus for the association, and we will strive to broaden our ties with local interior design students and nurture future talents.

Internally, HKIDA will reform its Executive Committee and improve its effectiveness. The Board of Directors has proposed extending the chairman’s term of office from one to two years, and each chairman can serve a maximum of two terms. In addition, the Executive Committee will introduce the post of Past-Chairman to help facilitate a smooth transition and allow the Past-Chairman to offer assistance and advice to the council.

Lastly, I wish to encourage everyone who is interested in interior design to join us in our various activities and support the local interior design profession, and thereby affirm Hong Kong’s position as the design capitol of Asia.

Antony Chan
Chairman, HKIDA

A Solemn Declaration from HKIDA

A Solemn Declaration from HKIDA

The Hong Kong Interior Design Association has received many inquiries of late regarding the Hong Kong Indoor Designer Association (website:www.ida168.hk) and whether this association is the same as the Hong Kong Interior Design Association. Many of our members have even received email invitations to join this association. Due to the fact that this association has a similar name as the Hong Kong Interior Design Association in both Chinese and English, and its abbreviation in English is the same as our association, many people have the mistaken impression that the two associations are the same.

The Hong Kong Interior Design Association hereby solemnly declares that it has no relationship whatsoever with the Hong Kong Indoor Designer Association, and the two associations are not the same.

Members have generally gained their knowledge and expertise from working within the industry prior to establishing their own businesses. Their know-how includes the creative use of colour, texture, finishes, fabric and furniture to create spaces to the client’s brief as well as achieving their expectations. Read more
