Iris Dunbar, founder of The Interior Design School, based in London’s Queens Park, has been awarded the IFI Fellowship Medal which recognises exemplary international achievement in interior design and honours those who lead, connect, inspire, enrich and influence the profession in an outstanding way.
A former President of both the British Institute of Interior Design and IFI, Dunbar studied Interior Design within the School of Architecture and Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. She began her career with Building Design Partnership, before setting up her own company combining graphic design, interior and exhibition design. She set up The Interior Design School in 1991 with the view that Interior Design should be taught within a professional framework. Dunbar’s ambition has always been to inspire clients and designers from all walks of life to create interiors that lift the spirits and to make the industry a rich and relevant sector.
Alumni include Nicola Osborn, Design Director of MoreySmith; Nicky Dobree of Nicky Dobree Interior Design, Andrea Pfeiffer and Ralph Born of BornPfeiffer; and Lucy Clark of Studio Clark & Co.
