ReJOYce – IDI 50th exhibition

In 1972, a group of impassioned designers led by architect Raymond McGrath got together to conceive of a space where designers could support each other and encourage development of the fledgling design profession. The Society of Designers in Ireland (SDI) was born. 50 years on, navigating economic highs and lows, that profession is valued at €6bn and the IDI has continued to support designers and their businesses every step of the way.

Now, post-pandemic, we want to celebrate this vibrant, influential, creative industry, and bring Irish design to the fore in the hearts and minds of the general public. We are running 3 events as part of JOY, a celebration of Irish Design – Design Leaders’ Conference, with our Education arm Design Skillnet; IDI Awards 2022 and celebration event; and ReJOYce – an exhibition of 50 years of Irish Design.

The exhibition is key to raising the profile of design in Ireland, which is long overdue.
