Interview with industrial designer Chris Lefteri
In design, materials can do a lot more than most of us are aware of. At the K trade fair (the world’s most important trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry), the team of EuroShop’s online magazine met the internationally successful industrial designer Chris Lefteri. In a few words, the creative mind sums up important trends for us.
Chris Lefteri talks about the effect materials that are used for shop design can have: What do materials look like, how do they feel or how do they influence the acoustics in a room. Those are complex questions that need to be considered when redesigning a store. At EuroShop in the Shop Fitting and Store Design dimension, interested visitors will find exhibits and know-how on the subject of materials and surfaces.
