On 16 December, the Design Library will host open lectures on industrial design from the Russian manufacturers of furniture and interior accessories, the representatives of the Industrial Designers Club.
The Russian furniture industry has a great growth potential and is one of the most competitive industries: it is represented by both large and small companies. The growth rate of furniture production for the 9 months of 2019 is 113% compared to the same period last year. About six thousand manufacturers are engaged in the production of furniture. However, the industry needs to be updated. A new approach to design and manufacture is needed to create a competitive industry. The quality is becoming one of the key criteria in the competitive struggle of furniture manufacturers.
One of the most important criteria of this industry is to attract new creative professionals who will be able to form a modern unique style and offer a consumer the ready-made solutions that meet global trends.
Industrial Designers Club members are the representatives of a new generation of Russian furniture manufacturers. The workshops combine in their production environmentally friendly materials, high quality of products and the unique style corresponding to modern trends.
Within the framework of open lectures Dmitry Lagutin, architect, co-founder of PLY, and Konstantin Lagutin, architect, co-founder of ARCHPOLE and co-founder of the Industrial Designers Club, will tell how to create a serial piece of furniture, what principles of production have influenced the creation of serial products and how to implement environmentally friendly production design in harmony with nature on real examples.
Participation in lectures is free.
