BIID reveals results from its first research into diversity in interior design The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) has released the results of its first survey on diversity in interior design, carried out between September and December 2020 across the UK. The study aimed to understand the make-up of the UK’s interior design sector in order to move towards a more diverse and inclusive profession in the future. Some of the key findings


were that while 69% of those completing the survey were white, the balance shifted to 78% white, 10% Asian and 6% black at a senior or head-of-studio position, showing the lack of ethnic minorities in senior positions. 37% of recipients also


answered that they had been the victim of some form of discrimination in their profession and/or place of work due to their race or ethnicity. BIID also researched


the diversity of BA and MA interior design students at UK institutions, and analysed employment patterns post-graduation. The findings showed an above average proportion from an ethnic minority background (29%, over the average of 23% for all UK students), but revealed ‘attainment gaps’ and poorer outcomes for students from ethnic minorities after graduation. The survey is available to read in full on the website. biid.org.uk

Fedrigoni poster


campaign relaunches to raise money for the NHS


The 19 Artists versus Covid-19 campaign has relaunched to raise more money for the NHS following the recent rise in Covid-19 cases. The campaign, first launched in May 2020, asked 19 artists to design an A1 poster interpreting the message ‘Stay Home’, a slogan vital in slowing down the rate of infection. The idea came from London-based Spanish graphic designer, Álvaro López, one of the 19 artists, and the project was taken on by paper manufacturer Fedrigoni. A limited run of 75 of each of the designs, printed lithographically by PUSH London, was made available to buy online for just £19. Many of the posters quickly sold out, but once the lockdown is lifted, the posters will be exhibited at Fedrigoni’s Clerkenwell studio and the first editions auctioned at a later date.


The 19 artists are: Alan Kitching, Pablo


Amargo, Noma Bar, Sarah Boris, Michael Curia, Nick Cook, Piero Di Biase, Mario Eskenazi, Vince Frost, Götz Gramlich, Michael Gibb, Henrik Kubel, Nina Jua Klein, Rob Lowe, Morag Myerscough, Shweta Malhotra, Alejandro Paul, Matt Willey and López. Ambra Fridegotto of Fedrigoni commented, ‘While each poster is unique, they come together to convey the range of emotions that people are continuing to experience almost a year on from the start of the pandemic... As the NHS struggles to cope with the rising number of cases, we wanted to relaunch this initiative to encourage more donations to those working tirelessly to protect us.’ To find out more, visit the website. 19vs19.co.uk
