IDS Vancouver 2022

September 22 – 25

Visit us at IDS Vancouver 2022 from September 22-25 to explore the future of work in an immersive virtual experience. In this collaborative booth designed by LIV Design Studio and Peri KONE, a student at LaSalle College Vancouver, LIV’s Student Design Challenge finalists will present their interpretations of the workplaces of tomorrow – brought to life with cutting-edge AR technology. The booth will showcase designs from four finalists, with IDS Vancouver attendees encouraged to engage with and vote for their favourite design to determine final placement.

Booth Concept

The future of work: a virtual experience will be brought to life by LIV Design Studio and Peri KONE, an interior design student at LaSalle College Vancouver. The concept we’ve selected for this exciting booth is ‘The Future of Work’, which speaks to this year’s IDS topic of ‘New Futures’ both thematically, and by involving the next generation of interior designers in the design process itself.

Peri KONE is a 4th year student in LaSalle College Vancouver’s Bachelor of Applied Design in Interior Design program. Her passion for interior design extends from a lifelong love for expressing creativity through a do-it-yourself mentality and a desire to inspire others through art, architecture, and culture. 

Peri views design as a way to leave a legacy for future generations by creating spaces that integrate communication, connection, and feeling to highlight their purpose. With the goal of one day opening a design studio in her home country of Côte d’Ivoire, Peri hopes to gain a sense of her own management style through this collaboration, while gaining invaluable real-world experience. Peri is eager to see her design vision come to life through ‘The Future of Work’ booth, and looks forward to collaborating with LIV Design Studio to showcase the work of her fellow interior designers.

Meet Our Finalists

Our finalists for LIV’s Student Design Challenge have been selected by a panel of industry judges for designing spaces that exemplified creativity and a new perspective on the future of work.

Kaitlyn D’Orazio & Sasha Zebroff | Framework

This design draws on the power of frameworks as a catalyst for creativity, utilizing geometric shapes in furniture and millwork to represent stability and order in times of change. Anticipating the evolving physical & mental needs of professionals, the design places an emphasis on mindfulness by allowing employees to cultivate their own personal frameworks by providing adaptable technologies and the space to use them.

Joshua Swanson & Hailey Bassiri | The Reorder Project
Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Inspired by the multi-functionality of a Swiss Army knife, The Reorder Project encourages physical movement and mindfulness with an adaptable design that can move and transform to suit a variety of workspaces. A simple, versatile layout uses partitions to allow for single group meetings, split-space dual group meetings, and a third function that can range from a climbing wall to a cozy lounge space depending on users’ needs.

Vivien Tam | Hybrid Office Design
LaSalle College Vancouver

This Hybrid Office Design highlights the ever-growing importance of technology by featuring clean, simple elements to reduce distraction and encourage productivity. Drawing on the spirit of exploration characterized by a futuristic aircraft, this design addresses shifting modes of work while equipping workers with the tools to solve the problems of tomorrow and uncover new mysteries. 

Jordana Dall’Igna, Julia Soares & Kimiya Khezri | Pixel
LaSalle College Vancouver

Pixel explores the limitless potential of togetherness by creating a collaborative, positive, and functional workplace for the interior design industry that extrapolates the limits between the physical and digital world. Welcoming professionals for both in-person and virtual meetings, Pixel uses bursts of vibrant colour and modular furniture to provide a comfortable, high-tech space that can double as a space to unwind and relax through team-oriented activities.
