I'm so happy about all the positive feedback our exhibit's been getting from the first few who've seen the booths during the alumni association party and press day. 

As much as I want it to remain a surprise, my batch mates have been bugging me to blog about it already. Keep in mind that these photos do not do justice to the beauty of each booth! You really have to visit our exhibit. I'm not putting detail shots from each room so you all have something to look forward to when you decide to visit next month.  :)

I hope those photos convinced you guys to visit our exhibit! This serves as our thesis and we'd all appreciate your support. Do it for the love of Filipino artists and sustainable design!  



The Philippine School of Interior Design has always been known to produce groundbreaking exhibits that become the benchmark of interior design exhibits in the academic community. For this year, the graduating students of PSID delves into the sustainable world of interior materials as they interpret and translate ten materials that define sustainability. The challenge is to be able to apply these materials into twenty interior design booths that evoke different moods and styles without sacrificing on establishing focus on rooms that revolve around the concept of designing for a better world. Research into the properties, use and application and installation of each material and analysis of its sustainable principles are deemed vital into the execution of designs. 

Jak ‘en Poy centers on twenty different spaces designed in creatively planned solutions. Stone, steel, concrete, paper, glass, wood, bamboo, rubber, plastic and clay will be given a totally new meaning as it goes beyond the usual applications and break barriers to focus on totally different take on interiors. Jak ‘en Poy celebrates integral concepts in design and strengthens the bond between the academe and the interior design industry as it unfolds a new interpretation of sustainable materials, this time making it analogous to unique, ground-breaking and stylized interior designs. 

The character of ten materials will be taken into consideration and will serve as a springboard to design interiors befitting the variety of styles showcased in the exhibit. The exhibit takes the audience on a trek through childhood games as corridors and hallways are named; being inspired by the concept that our present prepares the future generation through sustainable interiors. The audience is ushered through the first three corridors; BATO, takes a cue from the material stone, GUNTING takes on steel and PAPEL delves into paper. The audience is then guided through different sections of the exhibit namely HOLEN (glass), GOMA (rubber), CHATO (wood and bamboo), PATINTERO (concrete), PLASTIC BALLOON (plastic) and even PALAYOK-PALAYUKAN (for clay and mud). The analogies are based on the premise that the exhibit’s beneficiaries are the future generation- children as seen through their games. 
Jak ‘en Poy carefully planned, extensively researched and masterfully executed creates another ripple that eventually will become a wave in the academic community and in the interior design industry, something that PSID exhibits have always been known for and will continue to be for years to come.
