webinar home & interiors, INNER CHILD 2026 by Lidewij Edelkoort

Tuesday June 18, 2024

10:00AM – 12:00AM (Paris CET)

Recently, details from childhood have slowly penetrated the fashion and lifestyle spheres, introducing a more naive approach to design and colour. This search for the childish marks the beginning of a much broader quest for innocence, happiness and joy. Threatened by the extinction of our species (through the climate crisis and / or bots taking control) people are faced with doom and decide to sidestep our depressing times by lifting their spirits, travelling back to their childhood to recall the insouciance of being a kid. The inner child can become a powerful psychological tool; for example, when we write or draw with our wrong hand, we can become a toddler again and mentally incarnate childhood. Such liberating exercises are inspiring contemporary designers to help us reassess who we truly are and bring back a certain feeling of lightness and freedom; we feel content to be alive and curious about tomorrow. This forecast is therefore a timely learning curve that includes creating furniture from cardboard to building house, drawing, sculpting, painting, exploring, imagining, flying, and most importantly, cuddling. A major movement that simultaneously helps heal trauma and solve mysterious issues that lay dormant in our psyche and body. Brightening our days with items for the home that exude joy as an antidote to our morose times. — L.E.
