Moving Parts: Design for a Complex World

Experience the most compelling trends, people and products of today and tomorrow.

2023 IDS Theme

IDS launches its theme for 2023 - MOVING PARTS: Design for a complex world. 

MOVING PARTS asks: how are contemporary designers creating, sourcing, producing and distributing products in an ever-changing landscape?  

Designers are now faced with a reality that requires not only creativity but ongoing adaptation, leading to a new way of working - building constant change and flexibility into their practice.  In the last three years, interior designers, architects and manufacturers have torn up the rulebook.  

The pandemic re-configured our lives, from how we furnish our home and office to what constitutes a work day. Following the pandemic, global events changed shipping, manufacturing and pricing. Alongside these phenomena, society has accepted and realized the urgency of the climate crisis - yet another factor re-framing consumer choices. 

At IDS 2023, visitors can experience the Moving Parts of the design world: products incorporating sustainable materials and components, designs adapting to how humans want to live and interact now, and work resulting from reinvented manufacturing.
