BIID announces venue for 2014 Summer Party

The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) has announced that its annual Summer Party will take place at the London showroom of BIID industry partner, FORZA in Great Portland Street, London on Thursday 19th June.

The summer party, which follows this year’s Annual Conference and AGM, will provide the perfect end to a productive day for designers.

The event will be hosted in the Forza Showroom in partnership with leading Italian kitchen manufacturer Valcucine and Barzaghistore, the UK agent. Members will have plenty to enjoy together, with divine morsels from Villandry, selected cheeses from La Fromagerie and fine wines from the vineyards of Treviso and Trieste.

Joy Curniffe, the Institute’s Membership Manager said:

“The FORZA showroom is a fantastic venue for our summer party. We are excited to once again be partnering with them and as always, it is set to be a wonderful evening, rounding off a great day for BIID members.”

Commenting on the arrangements, Mike Hardy, Sales Director at FORZA says:

“This year’s party is a sequel to the very successful summer party hosted at the FORZA showroom in 2011. We are ideally placed to host, being just 200 paces from the RIBA. We very much look forward to welcoming BIID members and their guests for what will be a fantastic evening.”

Daniele Prosdocimo from Valcucine adds:

“Valcucine has extended a special invitation to Roberto Sutto and Laura Carraro, both eminent Italian artisans who will be demonstrating unique craft skills during this very special evening.”

Giancarlo Barzaghi from Barzaghistore further explains:

“The BIID party will provide us with the perfect opportunity to introduce members to the special skills that form an integral part of Valcucine production.”

There is still time to book your place at the Annual Conference, entitled; ‘Life-Changing Design: Transforming the Human Experience’. This year, the BIID will look at how health centres and hospices, leisure and work spaces, retail and residential interiors can all be improved through intelligent and creative design.

The day will feature a series of thought-provoking and inspirational talks from a number of global experts and design practitioners who will help tell the story of how design is transforming the human experience.
