IDS Interior Design Show - Central Bar

Interior design team Aleem Kassam and Phyllis Lui of Kalu Interiors will lead show visitors down the rabbit hole with their visionary conceptual design of the IDS Vancouver central bar. “We’re taking this opportunity to step beyond everyday design and be whimsical, explore our creativity, and take IDS guests on a journey outside the ordinary,” says Kassam.

The Kalu Interiors team is collaborating with a number of local designers, artists, and manufactures on their design that will be unveiled at IDS Vancouver which runs September 22-25, 2016.
