Inside 2016 conference programme announced

Dezeen promotion: well-known designers including Ross Lovegrove, Jürgen Mayer H, Job Smeets and Joyce Wang will speak at this year's Inside festival seminar programme.

The theme for Inside 2016 is Fluid Interiors. A programme of exhibitions, talks and debates will each explore the implications for interior architecture as the boundaries between the workplace, home and leisure spaces become blurred.
