Smart Design&Wellbeing


Smart design and Wellbeing applied to the Contract sector were the main themes at “Smart Design&Wellbeing”, the congress that on 10 October gathered more than 250 guests and influential people of the interior design world in Barcelona, and that was followed by more than 25,000 people through Live streaming.

The event featured four prestigious interior designers, who presented the future trends of interior design and shared their experiences. These are some of their proposals: more intuitive and timeless design; multifunctional spaces; blending of styles, materials and textures; technology; minimalism; the importance of natural light; sustainability; return to nature; the value of traditions and craftmanship; quality; projects that surprise the clients, and touches of humour —mustn't do without humour!

Presentations were followed by the “Innovative Interiors” round table on Wellbeing in hotel design, a debate that was followed by more than 25,000 people through Live streaming.

The four speakers were: Sundukovy Sisters, an internationally recognised studio working for important hotel chains such as Accor, IHG, Carlson, Razidor, Hilton and Marriott; Pepe Leal, a benchmark on the national scene, winner of the AD interior designer award 2018, recognised in Casa Decor with the “Award for Best Project” for his suite for the Portuguese Embassy in 2016, plus a “Special Mention” for his “Loewe Solo Origami” window display at the 2018 edition; Natali Canas del Pozo, partner and creative director of El Equipo Creativo, a design studio internationally recognised with awards such as The Best Hotel Design Europe 2018 and top-level projects such as the One Ocean Club in Barcelona; Tomás Alia, one of the 500 most influential people in Spain in the world of interior design, recognised by the national and international press, and Andrea Navarro Golobart, from GCA Arquitectos, a studio especialized in hotels and contract projects, awarded internationally for several hotel projects with AC Hoteles, Six Senses, W Hotels Worldwide, Mandarin Oriental, Starwood Hotels, Majestic Group Hotels, Sheraton Hotels and Four Seasons.

After the congress, organised by the leading china manufacturer Villeroy&Boch with the support of Dezeen and the Spanish Federation of Luxury Elite Spain, there were cocktails/dinner and a party in the emblematic chapel of the Convent del Àngels, built in the 16th century and belonging to Barcelona’s Contemporary Art Museum.
