World Interiors
Day (IFI WID) 2022

IFI WID 2022  |  Saturday, 28 May

Pride of the Past, An Incentive for the Future

The theme for IFI World Interiors Day 2022 was selected by members at the 29th IFI General Assembly in Dubai. Chosen to celebrate innovation and a future-forward look at the profession, while honoring the past and learning from its experiences. We took  stock and reveled in our discipline’s purpose and efforts to fill spaces with beauty and meaning.

The design community across the world participated in IFI WID 2022 in ways that were meaningful to them. They expressed and shared their creativity. 

IFI invited you to explore “Pride of the Past, An Incentive for the Future” and to share with your colleagues and the world what this means to you as a design advocate and enthusiast for your unique context and community.

Thank you for recognizing IFI WID 2022!



IFI World Interiors Day (IFI WID), a long-standing IFI event, is akin to Earth Day. It is an annual opportunity for all designers and enthusiasts to globally united through themed provocative celebrations – large and small. The theme is selected by IFI’s professional community of Interior Architecture/Design associations and their members around the world.

IFI WID causes public awareness, recognizing the value of Interiors and all who make built environments. Celebrated globally, IFI WID invites design professionals, industry leaders, students and enthusiasts, along with institutions, governments and members of the general public to organize activities and events that bring community members together to explore, learn, discover and create.

Physical or digital, anything is possible. Address the young or old. Tackle new definitions for sustainability. Consider health, work, learning or rest. Plan a virtual ‘pub’ debate, roundtable or symposium. Collaborate across borders. Become an activist. Make a movie. Save our culture and heritage. Your imagination is the limit!

IFI WID is recognized around the world throughout the entire month of May, and officially recognized this year on Saturday, 28 May 2022.
