GWS speaker Clodagh has grand designs on wellness
The wellness architecture pioneer, who will keynote at the Global Wellness Summit 2018 in October, hopes to convince audiences that wellness is crucial to design.
Clodagh, who goes only by her first name, is head of New York-based interior design firm Clodagh Design, whose recent projects include the Six Senses Douro Valley and the reopened Six Senses Kaplankaya.
Clodagh is considered a vanguard of wellness architecture and applies disciplines such as feng shui, chromatherapy, wabi sabi and aromatherapy to her designs.
Long before it was a global trend, Clodagh was advocating for sustainable and eco-conscious design principles.
In a keynote entitled “Wellness By Design…from the Cradle to the Departure Lounge,” Clodagh will explore the importance of creating environments that prioritise wellness.
“As new movements like wellness architecture take hold, I’ve often found myself thinking that the design world is finally catching up with Clodagh’s original vision, and yet she continues to raise the bar with her one-of-a-kind spaces,” said Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO of the Global Wellness Summit.
Clodagh’s design project have earned many awards, including induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame and Hospitality Design Platinum Circle, and being named among the Top 100 Designers in the World by Architectural Digest. The Robb Report also included her in their Top 10 Interior Designers in the World.
The 12th-annual summit, in Italy, will focus on the current business landscape and future trends for the ten diverse segments that make up the nearly $4 trillion global wellness economy.
