IIID Vision Summit 2020

Founded in 1972, IIID has 31 Chapters across the country with a pan India presence of around 10,000 members and an International Center in Dubai. IIID’s objectives are geared towards promoting quality and excellence in design and to be of service to people and societies at large. The Association plays a crucial role in inspiring and shaping opinions amongst the Design fraternity, facilitating interactions amongst key stakeholders and decision makers, and is instrumental in streamlining the design policies and trends in the country.

Ar. Jabeen L Zacharias, as the newly elected National President of IIID for the term 2019-2021, announced the Vision for the term – ‘Where is North ‘? and introduced the new Executive Council to steer the institution during the next two years. She has the honour of being elected as the first-ever lady President of IIID, which is the apex professional body comprising Interior Designers, Architects, and related Trade.

The lead theme for Vision Summit 2020 was anchored on the journey for man in search of ‘Where is North?’ North was the mast and anchor that led many an expedition in history. Man’s search to find new directions in life has been an inbuilt direction of his journey for progress from ancient times and was the ultimate guide to everything from farming to improve his life and livelihood and this journey can never end.

The search through design to improve life and environment as designers is about the need of ‘Conscious and Conscientious Design’ where everybody including design professionals, trade and people at large can take a call on the choices we make to ensure that we are on the right path for a better tomorrow and for generations to come.

“This is what IIID is setting out to do via the quest for North” said Ar. Jabeen L Zacharias at the event. She pointed out that at a time of global warming and unemployment, design can act as an instrument of change. “Any design has to be future-oriented and beneficial for the generations to come. Any designer can look for the guiding North Star to complete their journey in this quest,” she emphasized.
