Monday sees the start of the the world’s first ever Vegan Interior Design Week, a free virtual conference full of international speakers which has been organised from Australia.
The milestone event will address global issues facing the interior design industry, exploring sustainability, animal welfare concerns, recent technology breakthroughs and the growing consumer demand for ethical products, continuing to revolutionise the interior design industry.
The five-day conference will host over 30 international speakers, panel discussions, a virtual showroom, live Q&As and daily networking sessions, from Monday 1 to Friday 5 November, 2021.
Sydney-based founder and creative director Aline Dürr, is an award-winning interior architect, author and activist and says Vegan Interior Design Week is for everyone! “Whether you are vegan or not, you will walk away with a wealth of knowledge about how to create environmentally conscious spaces and how to live and work more sustainably.”
Topics covered will include vegan interior design, textiles, materials and biophilia. The virtual showroom will showcase the work of creatives changing the industry, from next gen material developers to conscious furniture suppliers; from ethically made bedding to toxin-free paint.
Participants will also get the opportunity to speak and engage directly with likeminded professionals at the daily networking sessions, building a global community of conscious interior design.
Panel discussions with the subjects Change, Choice, Challenges and Communication, will focus on the different angles of ethical interior design. Virtual exhibitors include Flocus, Ultrafabrics, Vossen, House of Upcycling, Ammique, malai, Graphenstone, mogu, Duvet Hog and Malva Collective.
The conference will be hosted on Beyond Animal’s digital networking platform, connecting the entire ecosystem of stakeholders in the vegan economy.
