A high-profile line up of speakers will descend on Melbourne this month for the co-located FURNITEX and DECORATION + DESIGN.

Light Home has 10 complimentary passes for one of the show’s key seminars to give away – see below to find out how one could be yours.
Organisers say the International Industry Seminar Series will be the main feature at the event, offering valuable insights on topics and trends influencing the design industry. The six “highly anticipated” seminars will be held on July 19-20, 2012 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
Design expertUK design guru Chris Lefteri has joined the impressive line-up of speakers for the seminar series with his topic, ‘The Importance of New Materials’. The seminar aims to capture how materials have evolved over the last decade to become such an important part of design, culture and business.
Author of seven successful books on the subject of materials and interior design, Lefteri will discuss the importance of considering materials right from the start of a project.
Lighting designsWorld-renowned lighting designer Beau McClellan, whose contemporary light sculptures and product designs are amongst the world’s most respected, will also headline the series with his ‘Designing on an Epic Scale’ seminar.
McClellan’s seminar will draw on his experience of developing the world’s largest chandelier, ‘Reflective Glow’, taking his audience on a journey through its design process. McClellan’s lighting seminar will also unearth the latest advances in LED technology and how it is majorly impacting the boundaries of lighting design.
Future trendsMeanwhile, acclaimed trend forecaster Milou Ket returns to FURNITEX and DECORATION + DESIGN this year with a ‘Trend Forecast’ seminar on the emerging design themes for the 2013-14 home.
Not to be missed, Ket will share her visions on the future design materials influencing product development as well as the emerging themes for bedding, bath and ceramics.
Cross-cultural designFinally, Australia’s own award-winning interior designer Thomas Hamel will join the international speakers at the event with his ‘Current Design & Global Cross Pollination’ seminar.
The self-professed master of the art of cross-cultural design will explore how to seamlessly integrate different cultures within an interior, as well as advise designers on how to make the most of today’s access to international suppliers.
