AD APARTMENT

A showstopper each year at the AD Design Show is the AD Apartment. This year the AD Apartment is designed by one of the new creatives, namely Sasha Bikoff. She put her own style into the apartment and it shows. The apartment just screams “edgy but modern” with the typical whimsical world signature by Sasha Bikoff. The apartment is to reflect the spirit of an uptown girl in a downtown world.

Bikoff used a unique design pairing and a colorful style to tie the apartment into one flowing piece. She also used remarkable products which break design rules. Bikoff’s reaction to that was that “Decorating should reflect who we are, regardless of design rules” and we can only agree.

VIP TRADE LOUNGE

New this year is the VIP Trade Lounge. With a special badge you have access to the lounge all four days. You can take your time there to relax, but also to network and work with clients.
