With a variety of noteworthy distinctions, II BY IV DESIGN finishes the year in impressive style.
On the heels of our latest international accolades, we opened a new studio in London and are expanding our service offering to new markets in the UK and Europe. Our marine work is prominently featured within the latest issue of Inside Marine, which celebrates our studio as the only Canadian firm to specialize in cruise ship design. And while at the Gold Key Awards in New York, where the Crystal Mozart was a finalist in the Best Suite design category, Dan & Keith took some time to explore The Salon Art & Design, an eclectic fair that displays works from art masters to young designers in creative combinations.
Our last newsletter for the year is filled with exciting news, aesthetic ingenuity and as always, inspiration.
II BY IV DESIGN has opened a new studio in London! Despite the uncertainty created by Brexit, the UK remains the second largest design sector in the world and the largest in Europe. It is still the most attractive European country for employment and foreign investments continue to grow. Aligned with international clients and consultants, opening an office beyond North American borders was the natural next step. Here, we share our insights on the exciting possibilities that lie ahead.
The only Canadian design firm to specialize in cruise ship interior design,
II BY IV DESIGN is profiled in the maritime industry publication, Inside Marine. Dan & Keith reflect on their marine design history and their creative work aboard ocean faring and river cruise ships, as well as how their land based design expertise seamlessly translates into the opulent designs found onboard. The article also speaks to their recent foray into the product design of IMO rated furnishings.
Always seeking the new and inspiring, Dan & Keith visited the sixth annual Salon Art & Design at the Park Avenue Armory while in New York. 56 galleries came together under one roof displaying an invigorating fusion of design and the decorative arts. While some booths were set up like galleries and others mimicked living spaces, the showcase included historical works by distinguished masters juxtaposed with innovative and intriguing pieces from emerging artists. The thoughtful array of works attempt to pique interest, arouse curiosity and provoke thought.
