The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has published five sector brief reports that explore the various influences affecting the interior design industry, and in turn, the work of interior designers. The briefs examine the factors affecting design in the education, healthcare, hospitality, residential, and workplace sectors.
"ASID is committed to providing the design community and the public with cutting-edge research that advances the profession of interior design and provides designers with the knowledge they need to maximize their impact on the human experience," commented Randy Fiser, CEO, ASID. "The five sector briefs provide real time insight into the factors affecting design and designers today. Design professionals will benefit from the insights revealed in each of these specialized briefs, and ASID is proud to make them available to the design community and the public."
Each brief presents an exploration of the unique factors affecting interior design in each of the five sectors, including the economy, environmental protection, security, generational differences, well-being, community, design excellence, data and knowledge, and value proposition. Design professionals who review the briefs will benefit from the research team's suggestions for proactively working through external influences, and will develop a deep understanding of the key points of each factor and the ways in which they affect design.
