Timeless design inspirations flourish at Greenfield District



From home improvement projects to complete renovations, those who value their living spaces are always on the lookout for new ideas.

At Greenfield District, design inspirations come from some of the most talented young designers in the country as the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) showcased this year’s batch exhibit dubbed “Evolution.”

PSID’s annual exhibit of its graduating students was hosted for the first time at the masterplanned Mandaluyong township of property developer Greenfield Development Corp. It is fitting as the urban community is home for innovative living and design ideas.

Greenfield District’s revolutionary fiber-optic telecommunications backbone makes its residential as well as commercial and office components interconnected. With this technology, living in its vertical communities is efficient and convenient.

“Just as Greenfield District is known as a ‘future-ready’ community, we welcome the evolution of great design ideas that are a perfect fit for the kind of modern homes that can be found here,” said Atty. Duane A.X. Santos, EVP and GM of Greenfield.

The exhibit, which is open to the public at The Square of the Greenfield District, appealed to new homeowners looking to personalize their spaces, residents who like to upgrade their current space, and for design enthusiasts who want to explore new ideas.

As denoted by its title “Evolution,” the exhibit seeks to demonstrate the progression of interior design through galleries representing the Past, Present, and Future.

The “Past” gallery showcases booths inspired by iconic mid-century interior designers. The students put a playful retro spin on contemporary living spaces, with concepts that include a space-age bathroom inspired by Finnish industrial designer Eero Arnio, and a lanai that brings Finnish architect Alvaro Aalto’s refreshing aesthetic to life.

The “Present” gallery focuses on the design trends of the moment, with its fresh take on familiar and favorite styles. Booths in this gallery favor the contemporary and current, with each space utilized in a unique way.

Innovative pieces include a waterfall desk that is the centerpiece of a modern Chinese den, a terrarium wall in the modern tropical dining room, and a rose gold capiz honeycomb divider in a modern Filipino bathroom.

The booths in the “Future” gallery highlights trends forecasted to become the trend in the next few years — bold furnishings, cutting-edge technology, and the fusion of contrasting design elements.

“This is the 37th exhibit of PSID, and we’re proud to say that we’ve never repeated the theme of a batch exhibit,” shared PSID 2016 batch president Carmela dela Cruz. “This time, it’s about tracing how design changes through the years.”

As its venue partner, Greenfield shares PSID’s vision of developing functional and beautiful designs that will be relevant through the times.
