As the world and the design industry is rapidly changing and being rebuilt in partly unknown ways, Grand Relations wanted to create a space for discussion and highlight current tendencies and happenings that affect the design industry today. In a conversation moderated by Hanna Nova Beatrice, founder of The New Era, we hosted and produced a live sent conversation from our atelier on May 28th. Topics covered were design, architecture, sustainability, digitalization and retail – all with a focus on the big question of what will happen next.
We thank Hanna Nova for joining us, and our guest for sharing their expertise: Emma Olbers, designer and sustainability profile, Johnny Andersson, architect and co-founder at Jordens Arkitekter, Jonatan Jahn, specialist in design and 20th-21st century work of art at Bukowskis, and Petrus Palmér, founder of Hem, for joining us. We also thank participating design brands and clients, exemplifying the power of change and innovation; Foscarini, Fritz Hansen, Hästens, Hem and Rosenthal.
