International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI)

International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers

The International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers is the global voice and authority for professional Interior Architects/Designers. IFI is the sole international federating body for Interior Architecture/Design organizations, and acts as a global forum for the exchange and development of knowledge and experience, in worldwide education, research and practice. Often considered as the “United Nations” of the Interior Architecture/Design field, IFI connects the international community in order to further the impact, influence and application of the design of interiors, promote global social responsibility, and raise the status of the profession worldwide.

IFI was founded in 1963 as a not-for-profit, limited liability company to expand the international network of professional Interior Architects/Designers. Now including over 74 member associations, institutions and schools in 45 countries on every continent, IFI worldwide collectively represents over 65,000 practicing Interior Architects/Designers.

IFI is a member of the International Design Alliance (IDA), a strategic venture between three leading international design organizations. The triumvirate includes The International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID) and The International Council of Graphic Design Associations (ICOGRADA). This alliance focuses on opportunities to further the design discipline based on multidisciplinary collaboration.
