I’ve been missing for a few days, but I have good excuses!
Thursday was of course the IDI Awards, more below, but Friday onwards was me over to England to attend a friend’s Going-Forth ceremony as a Buddhist monk. I had a very relaxing weekend with lots of meditations, nice walks and a total digital detox.
On to the IDI Awards…
I’ve been at this a couple of times and its always an interesting night and a great one for the ould networking! I got there slightly late but just in time to see the Lifetime Achievement Award going posthumously to Eileen Gray. If ever someone deserved it, for the contribution this classy lady made to design in myriad forms, its Eileen Gray. The amount of truly inspired design she created in one lifetime is literally ‘awesome’. From interiors, to furniture to architecture, she did it all.
