MIFF Webinars

Interaction and learning continues whilst sitting in the comfort of your own seat!

The MIFF Webinar series has been introduced by the MIFF organiser to continuously enrich our industry by encouraging us to keep learning and interacting during trying times.

Each episode invites guest speakers to share timely case studies based on the current market situation, and how the furniture industry can adapt to a "new normal" in order to explore more opportunities in the future.

The impact of the global pandemic has transformed our daily lives in the long run. Social distancing gives significant shifts of consumer behaviour that can be seen nowadays. It has redefined the way we work, spend leisure time and socialise - where most of it is now done within the comfort of home. Will this new social norm create an opportunity for designers and the furniture industry to grow?

The second episode of the MIFF Webinar Series presents MIFF Furniture Design Competition (FDC) chief judge Dr. Eric Leong together with two invited design entrepreneurs to discuss how designers can help to improve the world post COVID-19. The panel will discuss what the "new normal" is and how designers can contribute to a better world through design.
