Design is an international language that is spoken by those who design, and the clients and consumers for whom the projects and products are being created. The built environment should be interactive, whereas it should invite, engage, elevate and enhance. Human beings aren’t “adjunct” or coincidental to an interior space – they fully inhabit it.
