Patterned after the this year’s theme: Resilience of Design: Future Spaces, organizers of Interior & Design Manila 2019 in partnership with Global-Link Exhibitions Specialist, Inc. (GESI) had ought to instigate the concept of resiliency in design or the intentional construction of buildings, landscapes, and regions in order to respond to natural and man-made disasters and disturbances. This is a timely and trailblazing agenda for designers and considering that the Philippines is prone to natural disasters and extreme weather conditions that put local shelters in danger in cataclysmic times.

Interior & Design Manila’s peculiar designs that also hit close to home patently cater to the culturally diverse and all-inclusive market. Apart from its wide assortment of Philippine made bespoke furniture brands and construction materials, designs unveiled in the expo boast qualities that appease to the global audience. A collection of hand crafted traditional English country sofas in Victoria, Chelsea and so forth were amongst that stood out because of their vibrant floral prints. Many of the booths flaunted prominent interior styles encompassing the past, present, and even the future; from vintage and steampunk, modern contemporary and Scandinavian to sustainable and smart designs. In spite of these intercontinental styles originating from distant lands with an unfamiliar history, there was always a hint of familiarity from the local and native materials used one way or another.

The creativity and innovativeness of the locals also shined as seen from the thought-provoking designs displayed during Interior & Design Manila. Filipinos, known for being resilient and resourceful amidst their stressful situations, have earned their reputation for always finding the silver lining in the course of a tragedy. Ashes retrieved from the eruption site of Mt. Pinatubo were used as a medium to create religious relics and other home decorations and trinkets. Various local lighting fixture brands showcased elegant lighting designs dangling from the ceiling, some are made of indigenous materials like rattan for that Spanish-colonial period look and others used LED lighting that mimic celestial bodies that are futuristic in style.

There’s still a long list-of designs that are of particular interest during Interior & Design Manila; the embossed authentic leather couches, Chinoiserie cabinets, Moroccan lighting fixtures and Filipino ornaments proudly from our abundant regions. Construction and renovation materials were also mainly revolutionary and resilient in nature some of which were water and termite resistant wooden flooring, infrared-reflecting paint pigments for a cooler home and high strength concrete. These state-of-the-art and profound designs displayed during the fair were just the tip of the iceberg. The booming industry of interior design still has a lot more to show and offer for an even more avant-garde yet sustainable world.

“That’s why we are very fortunate to work with PIID in putting together such a meaningful event which is sure to open up countless doors of opportunities for the growth of our country’s design industry.” Patrick Lawrence Tan, CEO of Global-Link shared.

The realm of interior design is a fast-paced yet, unrestrained industry. Everyone is free to create, to design and to participate for as long the design caters to a more culturally diverse market, never forgetting to also contribute for the sake of the environment.
