International Federation of Interior Designers/Architects

Quick Reference


(established 1963)

This professional international organization was established in 1963 by a small number of European design associations and was very much part of the wider international movement to establish the design profession as an important tool in business and global trading. ICSID had been founded in 1957 to promote the cause of industrial design and ICOGRADA, like IFI, in 1963 in relation to graphic design and visual communication. By the early 21st century IFI had grown to represent 57 professional associations, institutions, and design schools in 39 countries in all five continents.

Subjects: Industrial and Commercial Art.
