The Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) celebrates its 50 years with a graduation exhibit with a theme “GOLD: Glamorous, Opulent, and Luxurious Designs”.
Being the top interior design school in the country, PSID has produced some of the best interior designers not only known in the Philippines but also globally and it continues to produce more. PSID’s graduation exhibit started today October 1 until the 31st to be held at Uptown Bonifacio Mall in Bonifacio Global City.
As the school celebrates its golden anniversary, GOLD will showcase luxurious and glamorous designs that also celebrate comfort, functionality, opulence, and cost efficiency. Co-presented by Megaworld, and mounted in cooperation with Boysen, Schema, Shell Canvas, La Europa, Designery, Daikin, and Tecson Flowers, the exhibit is set to showcase an array of 24 exquisitely-designed spaces that highlight the trends of the decades in which the school has offered design students quality training mixed with the aesthetic of luxury, opulence, and glamour.
For the first time in PSID’s history of graduation exhibits, the school’s students, alumni, and faculty have joined forces and showcase their brightest design ideas for GOLD. The exhibit will be divided into three galleries. The Students Gallery will exhibit interiors conceptualized and constructed by the 72 pupils of PSID Advanced Class of 2017, as well as students from the PSID-AHLEN Institute. The graduating students will showcase design concepts that capture the essence of luxury, opulence, and glamour as finishes and materials take center stage to elicit an ambiance that caters to sophistication and sense of style.
Meanwhile, the Alumni Gallery is a “blast from the past” of sorts with already established PSID alumni such as Chitz Legaspi and Lalyn Nivera participating again in a graduation exhibit. It is a way for the alumni to relive the challenges and experiences of creating a booth for the graduation exhibit and apply what they have learned, both from the school and in the practice to evoke a sense of nostalgia. Also a first for the PSID exhibit is the Faculty Gallery.
Select professors and instructors of the PSID, namely Michael Pizarro, Mark Perez and Vianca Anonuevo, Gino and Karen Abrera, Jigs Adefuin, Mary Anne Bulanadi, and Chat Fores will also showcase their works to help commemorate the school’s anniversary. Pitted side-by-side with the works of PSID students both past and present, the Faculty Gallery will be a testament to PSID’s elite design training. “GOLD” is a carefully planned, extensively researched exhibit that perfectly celebrates PSID’s five decades of design education.
For the past half-century, PSID has been known to produce groundbreaking exhibits that become the benchmark of interior design shows in the academe, and are considered go-to events for architects, fellow interior designers, design enthusiasts, and the general public to learn more about world-class Filipino design and innovative interiors that come to life. PSID brings interior design a notch higher each year, presenting exhibits that challenge the graduating batch to showcase their repertoire of design skills and the PSID mark of excellence.
