Circles of Architects, DESSO

DESSO launches online platform for architects and designers

European carpet manufacturer Desso is extending its Circles of Architects concept with an online platform for interior architects and designers.

This web community focuses on architecture, design, innovation, product development and a Cradle to Cradle concept, linked with Desso’s business operations.

“We started the Circles of Architects sessions in 2007, which involved holding regular meetings with groups of 10 to 20 interior architects all over the world to get their feedback on our concepts and ideas in the early stages of the design process,” said Alexander Collot d’Escury, CCO, Desso Group.

“During these sessions, they exchange ideas about the profession with fellow architects and designers, discuss trends in architecture and floor design and listen to inspiring guest speakers.

“On the online Circles of Architects platform, we want to continue this dialogue and give everyone the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas and together discover new perspectives and innovations.”

The website forum promotes interactivity and ongoing dialogue and is linked to various social media like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. It features news about architecture, design, fashion, art, upcoming talent, seminars and exhibitions.
