Design Talks at Top Drawer 2020

Our MD, Holly Hallam took to the stage at this year’s Top Drawer event at Olympia London to discuss the importance of sustainability within design
and our on-going approach as designers to be more environmentally and socially conscious.

The panel was hosted by Journalist and Hospitality Consultant Harry McKinley with other panelists including Nicola Kennan, Co-founder, Boxx Creative and Ana Carneiro, Founder, Be For Change.

The insightful discussion focused on everything from products that can be reused, repurposed and repaired to looking at how we can make more sustainable product choices as designers and educate our clients on how they can be more environmentally aware.

A short film of the talk will be coming soon…

Interior Designer Interview

In the latest edition of Interior Designer Magazine, our MD Holly Hallam and Design Director Karen Taylor discuss the evolution of DesignLSM and how we are placing strategic and creative design as our focus for the new decade and beyond.

Holly: I will be focusing on how we can nurture and encourage our team to continue to flourish. Ensuring that we enable each member of our staff to maximise their potential, to be curious and daring with their design knowledge and choices. To continue to look at hospitality through a new lens, taking inspiration from all avenues; whilst also having a keen understanding on the commerciality of the spaces we create. This focus will help the studio to continue to be a thought-leaders and creatively disruptive in the sector.”
