Drawing from the golden anniversary of the Philippine School of Interior Design, graduates, faculty, and alumni showcased their ideas into the most posh designs for modern day living. Illustrious past meets the future movers and shakers of the design world in PSID’s “GOLD: Glamorous, Opulent, and Luxurious Designs.”
Check out their designs from October 1 to 31 Uptown Bonifacio Mall in Bonifacio Global City..
Elegance is one of the main thrusts of the designs, bu the exhibitors incorporated important home living elements like functionality, comfort and cost efficiency in today’s settings. Some of which even highlighted on the essence of being eco-friendly injecting plants in their concepts.
Co-presented by Megaworld, and mounted in cooperation with Boysen, Schema, Shell Canvas, La Europa, Designery, Daikin, and Tecson Flowers, the exhibit is set to showcase an array of 24 exquisitely-designed spaces that highlight the trends of the decades in which the school has offered design students quality training mixed with the aesthetic of luxury, opulence, and glamour.
The Students Gallery exhibited interiors conceptualized and constructed by the 72 pupils of PSID Advanced Class of 2017, as well as students from the PSID-AHLEN Institute. The graduating students showcased design concepts that capture the essence of luxury, opulence, and glamour as finishes and materials take center stage to elicit an ambiance that caters to sophistication and sense of style.
Here are some of the photos of the designs:

Meanwhile, the Alumni Gallery was a “blast from the past” of sorts with already established PSID alumni such as Chitz Legaspi and Lalyn Nivera participating again in a graduation exhibit. It is a way for the alumni to relive the challenges and experiences of creating a booth for the graduation exhibit and apply what they have learned, both from the school and in the practice to evoke a sense of nostalgia.
Also a first for the PSID exhibit is the Faculty Gallery. Select professors and instructors of the PSID, namely Michael Pizarro, Mark Perez and Vianca Anonuevo, Gino and Karen Abrera, Jigs Adefuin, Mary Anne Bulanadi, and Chat Fores showcased their works to help commemorate the school’s anniversary. Pitted side-by-side with the works of PSID students both past and present, the Faculty Gallery will be a testament to PSID’s elite design training.
“GOLD” is a carefully planned, extensively researched exhibit that perfectly celebrates PSID’s five decades of design education. For the past half-century, PSID has been known to produce groundbreaking exhibits that become the benchmark of interior design shows in the academe, and are considered go-to events for architects, fellow interior designers, design enthusiasts, and the general public to learn more about world-class Filipino design and innovative interiors that come to life. PSID brings interior design a notch higher each year, presenting exhibits that challenge the graduating batch to showcase their repertoire of design skills and the PSID mark of excellence.
