Ineke Hans Salon

Furniture is one of the fundamentals with which we define the spaces that we live and work in and together with tools and clothing it was one of the first design disciplines to emerge. Yet the ways that furniture is designed, made, marketed, sold, used and disposed of are in constant flux and the role of the designer is changing. From early 2016 for one year salons take place in London to discuss 'furniture design and the position of the designer', aiming to identify pointers for their future.
