Form Meets Function In Sustainable Design For The Design Boost Lecture Day on October 18th In Malmo, Sweden

The Swedes have always been highly regarded for their take on tasteful minimalism and intrinsic utilitarian design. Their abilities to think on a deeper level that transcends the minds of many of today’s top conceptualists. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to tap into these sources of inspiration and knowledge behind the ideas?

Design boost, a unique new Swedish concept, brings together the industrys best for meetings, chats, and shows to initiate thought provoking questions and inspire actions that reveal to its participants how sustainability in design relates to a better society for all. The lecture day on October 18th, will reveal a panel of speakers that will give an incredible insight on sustainable design and how designers can integrate many of these concepts into their current work. Mathilda Tham, visiting tutor of Goldsmiths College Design department, will also be speaking at the event.

    I’m a great fan of the Swedish warehouse/store IKEA….I waqs there yesterday in Nottingham. It’s cheap good quality minimalist design whith great ranges in wood….when I wonder will those clever Swedes turn their hands to bamboo which is great for sustainability and has natural antiseptic properties. It is already gaining ground in the underwear market…maybe a sustainable fashion industry is closer than we think?

Meet Crosby Noricks

Hi. I'm Crosby, Founder of PR Couture, Fashion Brand Strategist and PR Girl Mentor. I care about supporting and celebrating fashion publicists as well as helping companies connect with their audiences in more meaningful ways. Recently, iMedia included me in their annual list of 25 Internet Marketing Leaders and Innovators, along with people from Starbucks, Twitter and Volkswagon, which I think is pretty neat. Like Elle Woods, I am a Gemini-vegetarian (that's about where the similarities end). Let's connect: Check out my full bio, Brand Elixir sessions for brands or shoot me a note at
