After graduating in Industrial Design, Chiara Ferrari developed her professional experience at architecture and design firms such as Future Systems, Heatherwick Studio, Lovegrove Studio, Zaha Hadid Architects, as well as Lissoni Associati in Milan – specialising in Interior and Furniture Design.
Previously acting as a D&AD judge and sitting on the Awards Spatial Design Jury, we asked her to talk us through some of her favourite spatial experience examples from award winning retail and exhibitions to interiors and installations from recent years.
I believe any successful design project should reflect the intersection between growing technology, client brief and contemporary / local culture.
In addition, Spatial Design should also aim to offer a unique experience to its target users, one that involves the senses, integrates technology, or challenges the use of materials.
When judging at Awards, such as D&AD, inspiring ideas, a good response to the brief, and high quality of execution are key aspects of the judging criteria.
With that in mind, I've picked out five examples of great projects that have been realised over the past year.
