CEVISAMALab’s Architecture and Design Forum will be one of the main features of the cultural programme at the 35th edition of Cevisama. Speakers at the forum will include eminent figures in the fields of architecture, interior design and design. One of these is a true icon of interior design, David Carson, who will be giving a lecture titled “Designing spaces with emotions” at 10am on Wednesday 22nd February in the Ausias March room at Feria Valencia (the venue for all the Forum events).
This is one of the most eagerly awaited talks. It is not for no reason that Carson (born in Texas in 1954) is known worldwide by the moniker “father of grunge” and is considered to be one of the most influential designers ever. David Carson discovered the world of design in 1980, at which point he held a degree in sociology and was a professional surfer. With no formal training in design he turned that world on its head, rose to the very top and stayed there
As he says himself, he had no idea that he was breaking the rules because he did not even know they existed. The specialist media have dubbed him a “contemporary legend” (Print Magazine), “The most important living graphic designer” (Creative Review of London) and “The most googled designer in history” (Eye Magazine). For Apple he is “one of the 30 most innovative users”.
He has worked for the world’s leading multinationals, institutions and organizations – Armani, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Microsoft, Pepsi, Levis, Warner and Nike, amongst others. His latest work is linked to the ceramic tile industry and he will be presenting it at Cevisama.
