During London Design Festival 2012, ING organised the “Can Design Save Europe?” talk at the B&B Italia Store in London’s South Kensington, which debated the role design, manufacturing and creativity can play in driving Europe out of recession. Speakers included architect David Chipperfield, V&A Museum Director Martin Roth and Financial Times design critic Eddie Heathcote. The event was regarded as one of the highlights of the Festival. ING also handled the UK media launch of the Tobi-Ishi Table designed by British design duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.
