Thank you to all who attended #FTF2017 last week. We are so glad you could join us for our West Coast debut and an inspiring day of authentic conversation and future-thinking. We look forward to seeing you next year #fashiontech
#repost@and@andreakantelberg Truly inspired at Fashion Tech Forum last week with the 1st session Henrik Most (shown here), Creative lead at IKEA @ikeatoday and Virgil Abloh, Founder and Creative Director, Off White @off____white .
They spoke about their new design collaboration for young people moving into their 1st home...and Virgil stated "it's a guessing game with a bunch of employees in a boardroom"...so they meet with people and see how they truly live.
Henrik shared that he doesn't consider people "consumers" they are all humans and that we need to consider the emotional element of design.
With today's world, many people have a different perspective of what is a "home". It's not "boxes" anymore with rules to state how one should live (eg a living room). People are more nomadic and want their home to be a place of refuge where each item can have that more personal (or artistic) connection.
Overall I was so impressed with how humble they both seemed considering they are two extremely influential people in the design world. We are in good hands 👐 (also in the photo is one of my greatest design influencers who attended the conference with me Andrea Kantelberg @andreakantelberg , a wellness-based interior designer).
