Architecture and interior design will be represented by Lorenzo Apicella, Ben Kelly, Doug Hamilton of Wolff Olins, Red Jacket’s Martyn Bullock and Richard Woolf of McDaniel Woolf. Product and furniture design will be assessed by John Stoddard of IDEO, Pentagram partner Daniel Weil and Craig Allen of The Conran Shop.
