Valencia, 18th July 2019.- Feria Hábitat Valencia is putting the final touches to its
programme of activities and lectures set to roll out between 17th and 20th of this
coming September. The lectures will address the main challenges facing the
interior design, design, contract and architecture sectors from a wide spectrum of
perspectives, although this year the focus will be on the challenges of the digital
era, the new uses of interior design as part of the ‘customer experience’ and the
relationship between the contract sector and institutional environments.
Design and contracts are stars of the show
As has been the norm for the last few editions of the fair, Hábitat will be
structuring its programme of events around four major themes: design, the
contract sector, interior design and trends. Each event will take place on one of
the days of the fair in a special space, the Ágora nude, which will be on Level 3 at
Feria Valencia, next to the halls dedicated to design and the avant-garde.
Design with a capital D will be under the spotlight in the sessions on day 1 of the
fair, 17th September, with Ramón Esteve giving a presentation on the
retrospective exhibition of his work at Hábitat. On the Tuesday, creatives from
Estudio Yonoh and Pepe García of CuldeSac will be taking part in the sessions
along with manufacturer Sancal, whilst the Association of Designers of the
Comunidad Valenciana – ADCV will also be hosting a discussion about the
economics of design in which Xavier Giner and Kike Correcher will be taking part.
The next day, architecture and the contract sector will be taking to the stage in a
highly focused session organised by the ARQ/DECO platform that will be featuring
eminent professionals including Fran Silvestre, Jaime Sanahuja, Carmen Baselga,
the Wannaone consultancy, Welcome Design and the Viteri Lapeña group
