Debuting this year, the Interior Design & Architecture Summit, which will take place at Hilton Tower Bridge London on April 29, has announced its panel discussion entitled The Rising Ceiling of Creativity…

Bringing together a handful of leaders and visionaries in both the interior design and architecture sphere, the session entitled The Rising Ceiling of Creativity will discuss areas such as the creative boundaries within interior design and architecture as well as looking at how designers and architects can inject flair while working within a budget.

The panel discussion, which will be moderated by editor of Hotel Designs Hamish Kilburn, will include the following panelists:

Gilly Craft

Gilly Craft started Koubou Interiors in 2004 after graduating with a Diploma in Interior Design with Distinction in 2002. She is the current President of the British Institute of Interior Design and was previously the CPD Director at the Institute. Craft, who exhibited the Hotel Room of the Future last year at the Independent Hotel Show London, has been a lecturer in Interior Design for her local and other colleges and a guest speaker for a number of years especially speaking on the subject of designing for special needs to include dementia.

Speaking ahead of the panel discussion, Craft said: “I was delighted to be asked to sit on the panel at the forthcoming Interior Design and Architecture Summit. This event, run by Hotel Designs, will be a great opportunity for the design community to network and meet with relevant contacts.”

Recently interviewed for Hotel Designs following her dynamic display of her Sleep Set at last year’s Sleep + Eat event, Yasmine mahmoudieh has been rewarded many times for her creative and innovative designs and is a reference in her field. Her multiple talents and skills helped her throughout her entire career in order to live her passion for architecture, design and entrepreneurship.

Charles Leon
– Director, Leon Black Interior Architecture

Charles Leon and Nicholas Black established Leon Black Architecture in 2014. Since then, Leon has been asked to lead lectures internationally on interface between design theory, neuroscience, innovation, emotion and the workings of the designer’s mind. His talks blend neuroscience, design, economics, politics, philosophy, sociology and current affairs to provide a new, powerful and persuasive way of understanding how the mind works.

Leon is the Past President of the British Institute of Interior Design and also a guest lecturer at Middlesex University, KLC, Inchbald and The Interior Design School.

Speaking ahead of IDAS, Leon said: “In my opinion, innovation is an innately human quality that pushes us to constantly improve our wellbeing and our situation in life. I am passionate about design, its role in innovation and its ability to transform the way people feel. I am fascinated by the emotional, mental, environmental, social and political aspects involved in design. Designing is a leap of faith, a view of the future, that is condensed into an experience. Designers and innovators are at the very core of this process”.

Robin Sheppard
– CEO, Bespoke Hotels

Robin Sheppard has been a hotelier for 40+ years winning many Hotel/Hotelier of the Year awards, including the Outstanding Contribution to the Hospitality Industry at The Brit List 2018. In 2000 he co-founded Bespoke Hotels, which has since grown into the UK’s latest independent hotel group with more than 220 properties, including the multi-award winning Hotel Gotham. Most recently he won the Hotel Catey and the Oxford Brookes awards for Outstanding Contribution to the Hospitality Industry.

He is also Hotel Sector Champion for Disabled People.

His greatest achievement, though, has been to fight back from GBS, a totally paralysing illness. His relative recovery inspired him to launch the Bespoke Access Awards in conjunction with RIBA at the House of Lords encouraging better design and empathy from architects and interior designers.

“Revolution is still in the air,” said Sheppard ahead of the event. “The world of hotel design continues to be turned upside down and this debate promises to be close to the centre of this step-change”.

Moritz Waldemeyer
– Director, Moritz Waldemeyer Studio

Moritz Waldemeyer Studio, which is owned by internationally renowned lighting artist Moritz Waldemeyer who recently exhibited an immersive installation at this year’s London Design Festival, occupies a diverse range of creative spaces, from art and product design through to fashion and entertainment. One of Hotel Designs’ recommended suppliers in the lighting category, Moritz Waldemeyer Studio‘s creative flair has led the designer to work with large celebrity profiles as well as international hotels.

The panel discussion, The Rise of Creativity, will take place at 4.30pm – 17.15pm on April 29 at the Hilton Tower Bridge Hotel, London

Constanina Tsoutsikou, the creative director of HBA London has been confirmed as the headline speaker of Interior Design & Architecture Summit (IDAS) which takes place on April 29 at Hilton London Tower Bridge… 

Following her crowd-pleasing Sleep Set that was exhibited at SLEEP + EAT – and being highly commended at The Brit List 2018 in the Interior Designer of the Year category – Constantina Tsoutsikou, the creative Director of HBA London has been confirmed as the headline speaker of IDAS 2019.

The Summit, which will take place on April 29, 2019 at Hilton Tower Bridge is a one-day event, designed to connect senior executives working within the sector with product and service suppliers for face-to-face meetings and business networking.

Tsoutsikou has been asked to speak at the event as she is proving herself to be a leader not only as the creative director of HBA London, but also as a true visionary in the arena of international hotel design. Her latest project to come out of the studio will launch soon and will be sheltered in a beautiful heritage building in Zegreb, Croatia; an area that Hotel Designs is pinpointing as a major design and travel destination in 2019.

Tsoutsikou will take the microphone to talk to delegates about HBA London and how the firm has established itself as a leading international interior design studio, sharing key moments in her career that helped her excel. She will then join the editor of Hotel Designs, Hamish Kilburn for a live on-stage Q&A session.

Speaking about being the confirmed headline speakers, Tsoutsikou said: “it is sometimes hard to carve out time for networking and collaborating opportunities in the day-to-day life of a designer.

“Events such as the Interior Design & Architecture Summit allow for the industry as a whole to get together to not only do business, but also to discuss major topical issues, from one designer or architect to another. It’s also a great place to meet up with and make new friends.

“I am delighted to be invited as the headline speaker of the event – I really look forward to catching up with Hamish on stage while making a great days out of it!”

IDAS aims to support the design and architecture sector with a unique platform to help create long-lasting and mutually beneficial business connections. “I have had the pleasure of watching Tsoutsikou, over four years, grow from the senior designer she was four years ago into one of the world’s most popular Creative Director that she is now today,” said Kilburn. “With her distinct ability to light up any room with knowledge and inspiration, I look forward to hearing Tsoutsikou speak at the event and interviewing her in front of our audience of delegates.”
