The Past President of the British Institute Interior Design (BIID) and co-founder of Leon Black Architecture and Interior Design, Charles Leon, will speak on Britain’s position in international hotel design and hospitality post-Brexit. Leon, who was one of the five judges for The Brit List 2018 and the awards, said ahead of the awards: “I am delighted to have been asked to speak at The Brit List 2018. Two of the UK’s major contributions to why Britain holds its place as a major international hub has always been its quirky education system and its ability to send out into the world innovative thinkers, not just in design and the arts, but in science, technology and research too. If we don’t teach people how to think, rather than what to think, our future is doomed – and I am excited to speak about this and the future of British hotel design and architecture on the night.”
In addition to Leon’s speakership, guests will also enjoy a talk by lighting expert to the stars, Moritz Waldemeyer. The experimental lighting expert, who exhibited a tactile personalised lighting display at London Design Festival this year, will speak to the audience on how hotel lighting has changed in recent years how lighting technology is allowing for more creative interiors.
