A trip around the world with PSID’s “Globalscapes”

“Foreign lands never yield their secrets to a traveller. The best they offer are tantalising snippets, just enough to inflame the imagination. The secrets they do reveal are your own - the ones you have kept from yourself. And this is reason enough to travel, to leave home.” 

― Graeme Sparkes

Travel and have a journey to learn so much, from art and architecture to local customs to even spirituality, all while having fun. Every country has something very unique to offer visitors. 

Now, you can now go around the world while you are marveling at exquisitely-designed spaces for free.

Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) Advanced Class of 2014 holds “Globalscapes”, a graduation exhibit running from Oct. 1-31 at the Super Sale Hall of SM North EDSA, Quezon City.

On the 47th year of PSID, this year’s exhibit showcases 22 exquisitely-designed spaces that showcase the beauty and cultural richness across six continents. The students not only took into account their assigned country’s culture but also basic design principles and ergonomics.

“What we want visitors to the exhibit to feel is that they have traveled around the world. At the same time, we want them to get to know a country through our exhibit,” says PSID Advanced Class of 2014 advisor Nicky Jardenil.

PSID Exhibit Egypt 

The exhibit is divided into different continents. One of the booths in the Africa section is Egypt, an elegant kitchen design by Michelle Almanzor, Pamela Carunungan, Samantha Flores, Patrice Huang, and Christinne Maron featuring the black and gold motif of luxurious Egyptian temples. The booth features pyramid-shaped lighting with settings for cooking and entertaining, marble countertops and island, custom-designed seating inspired by the Egyptian klismos chair, and a fully-stocked wine cellar. The kitchen also features clever and practical storage solutions such as a cabinet in the kitchen columns, a built-in cabinet for pet bowls, and Press Memory cabinets and drawers that open with just a slight push.

The space features a walk-through layout, a luxurious tub area , and a mix of Christian and Muslim design elements.

PSID Exhibit USA
