TELLING STORIES WITH DESIGN

David Rockwell and Sandra de Ovando both transform environments. Their work first intersected at Rockwell Group’s design for New York’s Vandal restaurant when they discovered what they shared in common: a passion to create immersive environments lasting for hours or decades. In conversation, they will discuss how they approach design in hospitality, how powerful ephemeral moments can be, and how collaboration is critical to achieving the very best in design.

Featuring David Rockwell and Sandra de Ovando. Moderated by Maxwell Ryan, CEO and Founder of Apartment Therapy
