ASID Press Release

ASID and DIFFA Announce Design Impacts Life Fund

Industry-Leading Organizations Partner as ASID Creates $375,000 Grant Fund

The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is excited to announce a donation of $375,000 to DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, creating the new Design Impacts Life Fund. The Fund will offer grants to nonprofits that provide services, education, and treatment to those affected by HIV/AIDS, with the potential to expand its reach to support others in need. This donation represents one of the largest single gifts ever to DIFFA.

The gift comes from the ASID Benevolent Fund, which was started in 1974 by ASID members to provide funds to those in need in the design community during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. ASID paused fundraising for the Benevolent Fund when DIFFA was launched as a larger design industry focused organization. This donation closes the chapter on the ASID Benevolent Fund and opens opportunity for DIFFA to increase its organizational impact and reach. The ASID Design Impacts Life Fund will be leveraged to create the greatest possible impact on those living with HIV/AIDS and the DIFFA organization. Thanks to the national reach of both ASID and DIFFA, potential grantees may apply from all over the country.

“ASID is passionate about positively impacting lives beyond the practice of design,” states Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, ASID CEO. “This profession is made up of diverse individuals whose shared goal is to make the world better for its inhabitants. Our new Design Impacts Life Fund speaks to our mission: to touch lives thanks to the power of design. We’re thrilled to give back to such a worthy cause and can’t wait to see how together with DIFFA and the entire design community, we can make a difference in people’s lives.”

In addition to its grant support, the Design Impacts Life Fund will leverage the combined power of ASID and DIFFA to spur the industry to action. Through their various programs and partners, the two organizations will continue to broaden the scope of the fund to inspire support from the design world and maximize its effect on all communities in need.

“With the generous donation from ASID—a huge thanks!—and DIFFA’s strong network of design professionals behind it, the Design Impacts Life Fund has so much potential to help HIV/AIDS-affected communities,” says Cindy Allen, Interior Design magazine’s Editor-in-Chief and DIFFA’s Chair of the Board of Trustees. “DIFFA remains as committed as ever to helping those in need and galvanizing our community to push the boundaries of what is possible.”

Adds Dawn Roberson, DIFFA Executive Director, “We are thrilled to start the Design Impacts Life Fund with this most generous donation from ASID! These funds, combined with the continued generosity of the design community, will contribute significantly to DIFFA’s granting for years to come. We could not possibly be more grateful to partner with ASID in such a meaningful way.”

In the U.S., 80 percent of the interior design community is female, and Hispanic and Latin women are among the most affected by HIV/AIDS. The CDC estimates that roughly 1.2 million people in the United States are living with HIV – and nearly one in eight of those are not aware that they are infected. Increasing levels of intravenous drug use, linked to an epidemic of opioid misuse, are threatening the gains made on reducing HIV among people who use drugs. HIV-related stigma remains a huge barrier to preventing HIV and is linked to the low number of people who receive HIV testing, as well as poor adherence to treatment, particularly among young people.

Both ASID and DIFFA have a rich history of helping others. ASID provides monetary support through the ASID Foundation, which advances the profession and communicates the ability of interior design to enhance the human experience through research, scholarships, and education. In addition to its fundraising and volunteer events, DIFFA has granted more than $44 million to support nonprofit organizations across the country supporting HIV/AIDS.

The Design Impacts Life Fund was officially announced at the annual NYCxDesign Awards on Monday, May 20, 2019 at New York’s Pier 17. Both the Society and DIFFA will continue promotion of the fund through their various annual programs.

About ASID

The American Society of Interior Designers believes that design transforms lives. ASID serves the full range of the interior design profession and practice through the Society’s programs, networks, and advocacy. We thrive on the strength of cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, including workplace, healthcare, retail and hospitality, education, institutional, and residential. We lead interior designers in shared conversations around topics that matter: from evidence-based and human-centric design to social responsibility, well-being, and sustainability. We showcase the impact of design on the human experience and the value interior designers provide.

ASID was founded over 40 years ago when two organizations became one, but its legacy dates back to the early 1930s. As we celebrate nearly 85 years of industry leadership, we are leading the future of interior design, continuing to integrate the advantages of local connections with national reach, of small firms with big, and of the places we live with the places we work, play, and heal. Learn more at asid.org.

About DIFFA

DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS raises awareness and grants funds to organizations that fight HIV/AIDS by providing treatment and direct care services for people living with or impacted by the disease, offering preventative education programs targeted to populations at risk of infection, or supporting public policy initiatives. DIFFA is one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the United States, mobilizing the immense resources and creativity of the design community. Since its founding in 1984, DIFFA has emerged from a grassroots organization into a national foundation based in New York City with chapters and community partners across the country that, working together, have provided more than $43 million to hundreds of HIV/AIDS organizations nationwide. www.diffa.org.

WELLNESS PAVILION AND WELLNESS SYMPOSIUM

WELLNESS TODAY: WHY SLEEP QUALITY DEPENDS ON LIGHTING DESIGN  

Date: Thursday, May 16, 2019, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

Speaker: Deborah Burnett, Principal, Benya Burnett Consultancy

Guest room lighting specifications have a significant impact on sleep quality and next day productivity, mood, and behavior. Presented from a design perspective, easily absorb the biology as to why ambient light plays a critical role in delivering a GREAT night’s sleep and contributes to an enhanced WELLNESS experience.       

Deborah Burnett, ASID, CMG, LGC, AASM, is an international award-winning registered interior designer, a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in the field of light and health, and a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. She is an active member of the IES and CIE Committees in photobiology, human health, and aging. A recent project, the ASID HQ in Washington, D.C., is the world’s first interior space to receive double Platinum level recognition in both the LEED v3 and WELL v1 certification programs. In part, this designation is the result of Deborah’s efforts in developing new professional practice benchmarks ensuring occupant biological protection consistent with American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines regarding the use of short wavelength-rich white light, a typical characteristic of LED light sources.

ASID 2019 Outlook and State of Interior Design Report

 

The American Society of Interior Designers’ (ASID) 2019 Outlook and State of Interior Design (OSID) report provides an extensive scan and summary of the essential knowledge needed to stay on top of constant change, to create a competitive edge, and to flourish in the interior design profession. The report first identifies key issues in the U.S. economy and construction industry to track during 2019 and includes projections based on 2018 conditions. A review of trends and disruptors at the macro-level, and in interior design specifically, comes next, including data that illustrates the state of interior design as a whole and the design implications that follow. The report ends with insights from interior design thought leaders on what they observe in practice and what to expect moving forward.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

Economic Outlook

The U.S. economy saw improved growth in 2018 and the general outlook is for moderate economic growth in 2019 and 2020, but at a slower rate. Trade is a substantial risk to the economy with the imposition of tariffs increasing the prices of building materials. The stimulus from the 2017 tax cuts helped push the national unemployment rate, but increased federal debt and could result in higher interest rates. Despite the uncertainties and disruptions in economic activity, the overall outlook for 2019 is positive.

Trends, Disruptors, and the State of Interior Design

Macro-level trends and disruptors mimic the trends and disruptors we see in interior design, and these influence how interior designers run their businesses, create solutions to projects, and further advance the profession. A few highlights are:

  • Top issues interior design business leaders are tracking include economic conditions, competition from other firms, and price increases on goods, services, and construction materials.
  • Slight shifts in the services interior designers provide indicate a change in future business – including new markets hiring interior designers, new positions added in design teams, and an increase in contracted services.
  • Changes in the U.S. population’s demographics will reshape the built environment and require solutions that address diversity and inclusion.
  • Technology continues to evolve and be embedded in our lives and the spaces we inhabit. Designers need to keep up with the changes and anticipate how new technologies may alter the design paradigm in the future.

Future Insights from Thought Leaders

The impact of interior design on the human experience is receiving increasing attention. As clients become more educated and aware of the research and science that empowers design solutions, increased requirements for data and performative outcomes are pushing interior designers to explore new innovations and expand their scope of practice. Interior design needs to evolve along with the changes happening around us in order to stay relevant.

12 – 1 p.m. Creating Purpose-Driven Spaces: What Does it Look Like to Leverage Design for Good?
Speaker: Meena Krenek, ASID, LEED BD+C

Human emotion is uniquely tied to human behavior. An individual’s emotional connection to a space, environment, or culture can provide a strong sense of belonging. This is valuable for developing engagement within spaces we design. As designers, we have the ability to impact behaviors through our design decisions. We must be mindful of this power as we seek a deeper meaning, experience, or contribution to society with our work. It’s important to continuously understand our audience and build spaces that represent a greater purpose and relationship to the activities that happen within, inspiring users and reaching their hearts and minds. In today’s world, everything is so highly competitive and constantly evolving that when designers create purpose-driven spaces, they develop a level of captivation and engagement with the environment which sets them apart.

The Impact of Design Series

Welcome to the Impact of Design Series. This section of the website is dedicated to highlighting projects that use evidence-based design to improve the quality of the human experience. The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) believes that design impacts lives, and collaborates with others to promote the value of interior design. These select projects support this mission and have gone through pre- and post-occupancy research to educate designers and clients on the power of design.

FEATURED PROJECT

DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. SCHOOL (CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS)

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School houses three schools on one campus: the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Preschool, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School, and the Putnam Avenue Upper School (PAUS). The project was complicated by its small and irregular site; the large and complex program accommodating 840 children from preschool to 8th grade; robust after school programs; and an array of engaged stakeholders.
EXPLORE THE PROJECT

PREVIOUSLY FEATURED PROJECTS

American Society of Interior Designers Headquarters (Washington, D.C.)

In May 2016, ASID moved in to their new association headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C. The primary goal was to create a space that supported health, wellness, and the well-being of employees, which would improve the organization’s productivity, engagement, and retention. ASID represents the design industry through cross-functional and interdisciplinary relationships among designers of all specialties, and among design practitioners, students, manufacturers, and suppliers.
