Shanwei Weng of AN Design, winner of the 2016 World Interior of the Year award for their Black Cant System, a contemporary Chinese fashion concept store, commented: “Performance in its varied forms is constantly changing, adapting, connecting and blurring boundaries. New forms of performance continue to shape and define the urban landscape.”

Italian architect and designer Fabio Novembre will close the seminar programme on Friday 17 November with his keynote speech “Design as spectacle”. Novembre’s eclectic portfolio ranges from the interior design of football club AC Milan’s HQ to retail design for high-end fashion brands including the Stuart Weitzman store in Rome. At 2017’s edition of INSIDE World Festival of Interiors, Novembre will discuss the fluidity between art, architecture, design and fashion in his work.
