As an eco interior design firm we were thrilled to be asked to feature on Clifton Life’s ‘Green Life’ page of the magazine (issue 127).
Here’s a snippet from Louise Edwards’ interview with Designrock director Susie:
LE: Why was being environmentally aware important to you?
S: Dan and I founded Designrock in 2007 but we’ve always been concerned about the environment. We both grew up with a huge respect for nature. We’re renting space on this planet for our lifetime and like anything you borrow, it’s important to look after it. Becoming parents strengthened our resolve to be as responsible as possible and so it was a natural progression that our business should follow the same principles and ethical approach.
LE: How can you be forward-thinking in design while working in this way?
S: It’s important to separate design from fashion. Fashion is transient - what’s fashionable becomes undesirable - and unfashionable becomes undesirable. Green design is about finding a solution that’s stylish, but that’s also timeless, durable and successful. Quite often this means challenging convention.
