- Visit ReJOYce - an exhibition celebrating 50 years of design for 50 years of IDI
In 1972, a group of impassioned designers led by architect Raymond McGrath got together to conceive of a space where designers could support each other and encourage development of the fledgling design profession. The Society of Designers in Ireland (SDI) was born. 50 years on, the SDI, which is now the Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) continues to advocate for and advance the value and impact of Irish design while supporting designers and their businesses every step of the way.
Let’s immerse ourselves in it, talk about it and have fun with it.
Let’s bring back the JOY.
Be part of it.
