At the beginning of June, the “Bureau of European Design Associations” (BEDA) held its 54th General Assembly at the Danish Design Center in Copenhagen. Now the organisation has announced who will be at its head in the future in the function of a president and vice-president: Christina Melander (Danish Design Centre) was elected as the new president, Mark Illi (Swiss Design Association) as the new vice president. “As the newly appointed President of BEDA, I am honoured and humbled, but most of all I look forward to leading the design industry towards a more sustainable, regenerative and equitable future. I am determined to bring optimism and confidence to the European design community, while staying true to our focus. Together we will dream big while remaining pragmatic, ensuring smooth operations and minimising administrative burdens as we strive to add value to our members and increase our impact.” Mark Illi, who was first elected to the BEDA Board in May 2022, promises to bring a delightful blend of creativity and pragmatism to the team. “I look forward,” says Illi, “to further strengthening design in Europe and for Europe. Our societies need strong creative skills to adapt and effect change. I know that BEDA can make an important contribution to this.”
