Fall 2022 Launch Events

We’re so excited to bring our first events to designers across the country this Fall. Our launch will roll out from East to West and points between in both real and virtual platforms. These two core programs will be at the center of our launch content:

Panel: Why wellness in design matters.

Caleb Anderson and DeAndre DeVane, Founders of Well-Designed, along with wellness experts, facilitators and advocates present a discussion for our times. They’ll explore the importance of adapting a healthier framework for ourselves and in so doing create a healthier, happier, and more harmonious design community. They’ll reveal original Well-Designed research documenting a stunningly high prevalence of stress and anxiety in our community. The panel will propose new alternatives, helping designers discover the positive impact we can have once we embrace fresh possibilities for our own lives.

Intentions:
  • Learn ways to forge a path to a healthier way of being where creativity, relationships and business all flourish.
  • Participate in the beginning of a new paradigm for design.
  • Discover how it feels to authentically connect in ways that reveal a shared awareness of our common professional and human struggles.
  • Be with us as we begin laying a foundation to expand our experience and knowledge together from a place of wellness and true connection.

Workshop: Mirrors

Well-Designed’s inaugural workshop is a mini-version of our full-day workshops. It will start the conversation of how the design community can unite together to create a new benchmark for holistic wellbeing. Not just in our work or community, but far beyond. In this engaging, wholly unexpected experience, surprises will unfold one after another. Our expert facilitators will guide you through a revealing exploration of how we’re conditioned to see ourselves and the world. You’ll be offered a rare chance to reflect on your unique, individual relationship with yourself, your work, life and creative process. An eye-opening invitation to try on an astonishingly simple premise will powerfully reveal how your individual vision can be the key to transformation. You’ll leave with the knowledge that your own deepest hopes and desires, made real through your particular creative lens, are not only a source of infinite freedom but also the source of authentic connection with others.

Autumnal Ayurvedic Nutrition

The A&D Building, Suite 361

Fisher & Paykel
About

Well-Designed Sponsoring Partner, Fisher & Paykel, hosts our delicious, enlightening, seasonal Ayurvedic Nutrition Experience featuring Amita Banerjee, a practitioner of ayurvedic healing for more than two decades. Amita excels in contributing harmony by creating awareness and mindfulness for choosing from among the healing expanse of nature’s wealth. Her mission is to teach holistic wellness in the easiest way and make complete wellness and access to one’s higher self an achievable goal in day to day life.

Ayurveda is a combination of Ayur (Life) and Veda (Knowledge). By its nature, ayurveda, the world’s oldest healing science, is holistic. Every aspect of health, spirituality, mindful and positive existence leading to a purposeful completion of this life journey has been incorporated in this vast and complete science. Estimated to be older than 6000 years, the science continues to evolve to fit in perfectly with all stages and ages of life in our times.

At this event, the focus will be on ayurvedic nutrition and leaning into the current season. Amita explains, “In the ayurvedic concept of wellness the seasons govern our inner and outer being. Similar to the trees paring down to prepare for winter by shedding their leaves, so we can see Fall as the perfect time to cleanse toxins from our system and boost our resilience and immunity in preparation for the winter months.”

Intention: Ayurveda’s mission is to promote good health and relieve stress and anxiety. Fall detox reduces inflammation, improves digestion, cleanses the respiratory channels, maintains healthy weight, aids weight loss, reduces bloating and acidity, boosts immunity, releasing stored emotional toxins, and alkalizing the body.

Sound Meditation

Date
Tuesday, November 15, 2022
Time
6:15 pm
Location
Stark
The D&D Building, Suite 11
979 Third Avenue
New York, New York
Hosted by
Stark
About

Well-Designed Sponsoring Partner, Stark, hosts our Sound Meditation experience. Meditation can help to quiet an over-active and/or distracted mind which in effect helps to relieve stress and allow one to find balance in a state of calm, relaxation and mental clarity. Sound Meditation facilitates a deeper experience by using overtone-emitting instruments (such as singing bowls, gongs, and vocalization) where the sound vibrations help guide one to a heightened state of self-awareness. These vibrations can help focus energy and attention and help provide access to sub-conscious release.

Intention: relieve stress, increase feelings of calm, boost access to empathy, creativity and memory.

Well-Designed Membership is open to interior designers, architects, allied industry professionals, students of New York School of Interior Design and employees of our Founding Partner & Sponsor Partner companies.
