Animal-friendly, human-friendly and planet-friendly interior design COMMERCIAL | RESIDENTIAL I'm Chloe Bullock, a Brighton-based interior designer - running Materialise Interiors since 2005 - designing spaces for clients with both commercial and residential projects. I have been working in design since 1994 and am a BIID Registered Interior Designer® at the British Institute of Interior Design. I'm proud to be one of the nine Founding Signatories of Interior Design Declares, launched in March 2021 for those working in the interior design industry and supply chains to commit to strengthen our working practices to design spaces with a more positive impact on the world around us. I have worked in the area of Sustainable Design for most of my career. Use of healthy materials and specifications is an important crossover with sustainability, so I have continued my learning in these areas: - I'm the 1st interior designer in the UK to be VEGANDESIGN.ORG CERTIFIED™ (IDCEC accredited) - I'm a FitWel® Ambassador and have studied the WELL Building Standard - meaning I can guide clients on optimising wellness within their spaces - I'm currently studying for the certificate in Healthier Materials & Sustainable Building at The New School, Parsons, New York I'm also a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. The organisation encourages industry to work together on challenges that society faces.
Having a One Planet Living action plan enables to me to measure and monitor improvements in how my company operates and undertakes work for clients. I very much want to influence my industry to do better - so my Action Plan looks inwards (including working to Net Zero) as well as outwards to my industry as a whole.
