ICYMI: Watch the Virtual Panel Recording

Moderated by Sight Unseen co-founder and editor-in-chief Jill Singer, this year’s powerhouse panel of trendsetters is intimately engaged in the process of design and its challenges.

 

All of them began their careers with a focus on interiors and have since expanded into product design. Their experiences, which span residential, commercial and hospitality projects around the world have yielded precise insights regarding not just how to design well, but why and for whom – questions that matter more than ever in our complex and increasingly global society.
