Claus Sendlinger on designing for the modern world

Check out this new interview clip with Design Hotels founder Claus Sendlinger that we shot last month in New York City in connection with the launch of Further Thoughts, our talk series with NeueHouse and Surface Magazine. Our first installment was a major success, filling up completely for a fascinating discussion between three thought-leaders in lifestyle, design, and hospitality: Sendlinger, world renowned trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, and Spencer Bailey, editor in chief of Surface Magazine.

A roundtable discussion, titled “The Dawn of Re-engagement,” tackled design, branding, and community-building in a dynamic economy in which discerning consumers seek powerful and connective experiences. It was followed by a mezcal reception with music by experiential DJ Lemurian of Cosmic Awakenings, accompanied by New York-based violinist and music producer, Andrei Matorin. More images from the event can be viewed here.

We’re already hard at work putting together the next instalment of Further Thoughts, also a collaboration between Design Hotels, Neuehouse, and Surface Magazine, this one to take place in September in Los Angeles. Stay tuned for more details on the topic, panel speakers, and how to RSVP.

Many thanks to our friends at The Shop at NeueHouse and Joshua Aronson for the video and photos, respectively.
