No matter if we are sleeping or awake, at work or at home, every moment of our lives we
are in contact with both science and design. The scientific world touches everything to do with
interior design—from the ingredients that go into a can of paint to the microbes we experience
and leave behind when we enter and exit a space. In the September/October issue, i+D will
explore the science behind design through topics to include color theory, the biology of the built
environment, and the chemical makeup of the materials we use to design today’s spaces. It’s a
crossroads where the research laboratory and the design studio meet and create a positive impact
for all who experience the results.
