The name of the event was Design Matters - an evening of discussion on the impact of design in our everyday lives, set in beautiful surroundings. Design matters, as it affects how we work, relax and socialize in our homes. Design affects our emotions, how we move within our spaces, how we perceive light, and many more large and small elements that contribute to our mood and overall well being.
