Design Hotels™ is pleased to announce Future Forum 2008, being held in Berlin, October 15th-17th.
In its fifth year running, the Future Forum will once again connect leading talent in the design, art and architecture communities with great minds from the hospitality industry. Hoteliers, developers, investors, architects, designers, restaurateurs and consultants will come together to broaden their perspective on the ever-expanding hospitality world.
Human <-> Design
This year's Design Hotels™ Future Forum will explore the relationship between the human being and design. This expansive topic will be discussed within the context of two design developments that have and will continue to affect the hospitality industry:
Design as Art
Aesthetically, design addresses the human wish for a unique identity and luxury status.
Ethically, design strives to be socially responsible and efficient, addressing the needs of the human being living in the modern world.
