International Symposium of Interior Architecture and Spatial Use
Tallinn, Estland

Die estländische Innenarchitektenvereinigung lädt wieder zum alljährlichen Symposium in Tallinn:


Estonian Association of Interior Architects is happy to invite you to
the International Symposium of Interior Architecture and Spatial Use
SISU 2019 „Tegelik / Actual“

from 12 to 14 June
at the Põhjala Factory, Tallinn, Estonia

This year, the focus of SISU Symposium will be on the physical presence of our craft. SISU 2019 will investigate strategies for spatial intervention, making and production through educational practices that combine direct engagement and participation in the creation of physical space. We will look at the tactile-sensorial experience a space can provide, we will explore material design through the lense of interior architecture and we’ll be inspired by the words of a long-time professor of the interior architecture department of the Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonian interior architect and designer Vello Asi, who said that space should always be designed from inside out. 

From 12 to 14 June 2019, we invite interior architects and students of the field as well as professionals and students from neighbouring fields – architects, designers, etc – to join us for a three-day exploration of the interior architecture and spatial design process at the Põhjala Factory on Marati St, Tallinn. We will start with an empty space and will together – in the form of workshops and lectures – build up SISU Symposium 2019.

This year, the curatorial team consists of members of the Interior Architecture Department of the Estonian Academy of Arts EKA led by Professor Hannes Praks.

Veiko Liis (Tallinn)
