4. Get to know more about architecture, sustainability, industrial design, and various topics at Poltrona Frau’s public event

Designer Roberto Palomba is set to embark on a veritable grand tour of Asia during his four-leg event happening in different cities in Asia, discussing topics such as architecture, sustainability, industrial design, and a new concept of what it means to be "luxury," in partnership with furniture-maker, Poltrona Frau. The tour will conclude in Singapore on 14 May.

Awaken your inner interior design diva with the discussions on high-quality architecture and design that may offer the solution to issues such as architectural sustainability and the environmental impact of design. The topics will revolve around the design of each individual furnishing to meet functional needs (sitting, eating, reading...) while still representing a semantic value that creates a harmonious relationship with the space it occupies.
