Dear Texas chapter ASID members For this quarterâ€™s message, I am reprinting the letter that the ASID National Board of Directors sent out regarding this difficult time for our nation.
May we all stay safe, healthy and see our way forward to embrace change. Sincerely,
Lisa Barron, ASID, RID, NCIDQ
Texas Chapter ASID President 2019-2020
It is painfully obvious that America must deal with the clear injustices against the African American community. The problems of inequality in this country are complex and have deep roots. We all must be willing to put in the work to find solutions.
The tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery are the latest in a long string of deaths that
exemplify how black people are treated differently. The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) stands firmly
against racial inequity, systemic racism, and violence and destruction of any kind.
We are not innocent bystanders. As an organization, we need to reflect on how to increase diversity within the profession,
seek representation that better reflects the population, and stand against business practices that harm African Americans.
We are committed to putting in the work to realize a future where environments do their part in peacefully bringing people together in difference and diversity. We must play a role in finding solutions. --- ASID National Board of Directors

Three Texas Chapter Members Recognized with 2020 ASID National Honors We are thrilled to announce that three ASID Texas Chapter members have been bestowed with 2020 National Honors.
Jane Garland Lucas, FASID, NCIDQ, RID Jane Garland Lucas of Austin has been
recognized for her outstanding and exemplary
service to ASID and the interior design profes-
sion for over 43 years with a Lifetime Award,
which was bestowed by the ASID National
Examiners Committee for continuous and
important contributions to the industry and
ASID on the National level, at the state level in
two different Chapters and the Design
Community local level.
Jane has built a reputation for outstanding creativity and organizational focus
that has attracted students, colleagues and clients alike. Her roster of award
winning projects illustrates a wide spectrum of expertise, from overall design
excellence to lighting and historic preservation. In over 40 years of practice and
dedicated service, including leadership positions in both the ASID New England
and Texas Chapters, she has helped to advance the profession on many fronts.
Nationally, Jane has served as an IDCEC course reviewer and a NCIDQ IDEP
mentor. As a Registered Interior Designer in Texas, she continues advocacy for
Jane received her Master of Science in Interior Design from Drexel University
and a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Sweet Briar College. Early employ-
ment at both architectural and interior design firms quickly solidified a career
building inter-disciplinary conversations and activities. With the launch of JGL
Interiors, Boston's first interior design firm and WBE (Woman Business
Enterprise certification) to offer interior design services to architectural firms as
a consultant, Jane attained world-wide contracts and awards. Her belief in
collaboration reinforced her involvement in government affairs and legislative
activities impacting interior design.
Starting her ASID involvement as a student member, her commitment to
education continued throughout her career. Jane taught at numerous New
England colleges, including as an associate professor at the Rhode Island School
of Design. Teaching and her dedication to students continued with her move to
Austin, TX as did her career-long service to
projects in education and civic in their Interiors Diversified studio. She’s been
with Perkins+Will since receiving her Masters of Interior Design in 2017 from
the University of Texas at Austin.
Heather is actively involved in student outreach and education through
programs like ACE, ASID and RStudio. As a Material Performance Lab member
at Perkins+Will Dallas, Heather is able to spread her passion for material health
and sustainability to professionals and students alike. She is LEED AP BD+C
accredited and is hard at work studying for her NCIDQ exams.
While she has lived in a variety of cities and climates, Heather has happily called
Texas her home for the past ten years.
ASID recognizes the need to grow diversity and inclusion in the interior design
profession. Through ASID Ones to Watch, the Society supports rising leaders to
ensure that diversity is reflected at all levels of the industry. Each year, the ASID
Ones to Watch program identifies and recognizes rising leaders in the interior
design industry who demonstrate exceptional leadership potential and a willing-
ness to push the boundaries of the profession. They are poised to take the next
step in their careers. Up to 20 applicants are honored as ASID Ones to Watch
Award Winners within four unique categories: Design Excellence, Education
Leadership, Manufacturing Leadership, and Volunteer Leadership.

Designing the New Paradigm By Julia A. Molloy
We are standing on the precipice of a new world. Uncertainty
sets in as we gaze upon uncharted territory. With so many
moving reference points and unknowns, it can be a challenge
to get our bearings and move with a sure-footed stride.
So where do we, as a design community fit in to the new
paradigm? Has the designersâ€™ role changed and how are our
business models going to adapt to the rapidly evolving needs
of the world. These are the questions our community has
been grappling with. In fact, all business sectors are evaluating
the same questions for themselves. I would argue however,
that the design industry in particular, is faced with a
It is important to remember that our profession is actually
quite young. It was only around 1913 that the fabulous Elsie
de Wolfe carved out this role for us all. Her focus was
aesthetics and space planning. Compared to other profes-
sions like lawyer, physician, architect, grocer, barber, you
name it, it likely has a few hundred-year head start on interior
â€œI believe there is no greater force than design in transforming the planet, one person at a time, one family at a time and one community at a time. We create an invisible ripple effect as we impact the minds, bodies and spirits of the lives we touch.â€?
- Julia A. Molloy
- 18 - ISSUE II 2020 | ASID TEXAS CHAPTER
There are turning points in each of our lives that grow us up, seemingly overnight. We have arrived at that
turning point for the design industry. We should not look to the past for the new normal but take our place as
the key player in designing the new paradigm. Seriously, what other industry has this intrinsic multi-faceted
influence? No other I can think of. We are the ones!
So, with that as our foundation, I look to the future world we are designing. What will we see? What are the
new set of needs and demands our world will contour to? In having some foresight, we provide ourselves with
a whole host of opportunities that we can choose to participate in as business owners. This is the foundation
upon which we navigate and pivot our businesses and industry as a whole.
As an industry business expert and consultant, I’ve been breaking apart the challenge into bite size pieces so I
can help my clients and design community to make sense of the choices ahead of them. I believe we must
“Designing to match client values will be the new focus.” – Julia A. Molloy
make educated predictions to understand the possible trends so we can create some growth strategies for our
businesses. I’m going to share with you what I anticipate.
25 Predictions JULIA MOLLOY’S
I don’t have a crystal ball by any means, nor will all of the predic-
tions be perfect or complete, but these are the things I believe we
will see anew or with more prevalence in the years to come. The
speed of this evolution will largely be determined by the choices
you as designers, architects, manufacturers, builders, and product
designers make from this point forward.
1. Anti-microbial metals, coatings and fabrics will be common-
place and used not only for high touch surfaces, but in fashion,
upholstery, phones and accessories, vehicles and appliances.
They will be standard in residential products and design. They
will be mandated in commercial, government and hospitality
2. Hardware, fixtures, door pulls, light switches, doorknobs and
high touch design elements will be rated or certified based on
their anti-microbial properties.
3. All manner of no touch solutions will be prevalent in residential design, not just airport and restaurant bathrooms.
4. Suggested by LA based Interior and Product Designer,
Christopher Grubb, Similar to LEED certification, buildings,
restaurants, home developments, workplaces will be graded
on their anti-microbial and wellness factor. Diners in California
are already used to seeing a similar rating near the front door
as they walk into a restaurant, that indicates how well it did on
its last health inspection.
5. Health and wellness certification entities and programs, similar to LEED will emerge to guide and certify on a whole host of
new metrics that will be tracked and monitored will be the
6. New apps will emerge to helping people to find these new health-oriented businesses, restaurants, hotels etc.
7. Most commercial and government spaces will have advanced air filtration and UV systems that filter down to .124 microns
(the size of the corona virus).
8. NYC Interior Designer, Benjamin Huntington, ASID President Elect, suggests that entry rooms or mud rooms may be
updated into what are essentially decontamination zones to
clean off, change clothing and sterilize items before coming
into the home.
9. Anti EMF technology in the home will become a thing. As 5G wifi and other electromagnetic field radiation emitting tech-
nologies bombard the modern human to ill effect, solutions to
protect or counteract the lowered immunity and DNA muta-
tion caused by ceaseless exposure, will emerge.
10. Smart home technology will take the lead in design and will
incorporate new monitoring, tracking, sterilization and filtra-
11. Personal bio metrics will be incorporated into many smart home designs and systems. This means that personal fit
tracker devices will sync up with smart home systems and will
adjust aspects of the environment to influence your wellness
a. For instance, sunlight adjustments, music, aroma therapy,
chroma light therapy solutions are automatic upon receiving
bio metrics that indicate high stress indicators, like elevated
heart rate and cortisol levels.
ASID TEXAS CHAPTER | ISSUE II 2020 - 19 -
12. 3D printing for everything and new materials to print them with, many
making use of recycled, reclaimed, refuse and bio waste resources. Also
integrating nano tech and responsive materials is going to be the next level.
This is cool for many reasons. I’m pretty excited to see how we integrate
the idea of ‘seamless, ‘interlocking pattern’ and ‘responsive’ into design of
all disciplines. Seamless, responsive, smart clothing…
13. Custom everything.
15. Biophilia and bio mimicry in interior and product design will become main-
stream in residential, commercial, hospitality and public space design. Many
countries have already embraced these design principals in public buildings.
Think Zaha Hadid and the Singapore Changi Airport Jewel Terminal. The
United States with its slow to
adopt modus operandi, will begin
the shift can be equated to
16. Many health gyms will adapt by
incorporating wellness into their
design and programs. Think steril-
ization, anti-microbial coatings, UV
and air filtration systems coupled
with biophilic designed spaces,
organic juice bar, wellness assess-
ments, wellness coaches and
17. Commercial office spaces will
shrink and require upgrades to
incorporate new safety, wellness
and remote team member integra-
tion. Many commercial office
spaces will be converted to
- 20 - ISSUE II 2020 | ASID TEXAS CHAPTER
and oxygen therapy lounges.
18. Remote working a few days a week will become much more prevalent. 4day work weeks will become commonplace. Homes will need to be
updated with remote work tech, lighting, sound, productivity and concen-
14. Curated everything.
to evolve more quickly now that
biophilic design wellness focused businesses of all kinds. Think meditation
labs, sensory deprivation meditation tanks, cryotherapy, chroma therapy,
19. Outdoor spaces, both residential and commercial will be maximized for usability.
20. Remote shopping and meetings will become the norm.
21. Showrooms and design centers will add virtual shopping and virtual reality
Imagine this scenario: A commercial building with an entire floor of converted office space, now a wellness floor. It’s a part of your wellness membership, a perk that came with the new job. Picture “Nap Labs” where you can go take a 30 minute nap, have a smoothie and an oxygen dose to recharge. After work you visit the “Rant Room”. It has anger venting soundproof rooms where you put on your goggles and then scream at the top of your lungs while blasting death metal and smashing a stack of china plates against the concrete wall, specifically designed to amplify the crash. (These already exist in Asia.) Then you go to the wellness gym, have a quick shower, sit in the calming chroma therapy pod, and freshen up. Finally, you go grab dinner and a drink on the rooftop lounge with a couple friends before heading home. Forward thinking commercial property owners and companies will be looking for these kinds of integrated solutions in their remodels.
to their repertoire.
22. Community and connection will be more deeply valued. Design
will facilitate these gatherings and
personal connection while main-
taining a roomy setting. This will
include a focus on room acoustics
and minimizing high touch items.
23. Vegan and conscious product design will become the new
luxury. Designing to match client
values will be the new focus.
24. Membership and subscription models will continue to be
adopted by service centric busi-
25. Home delivery for everything.
As we adapt as business owners we leverage our own passions,
strengths, capabilities and desires and combine them with what we antic-
ipate the future needs of our clientele. If we don’t see what we like in any of
those scenarios, we shift clientele or our capabilities.
I see 3 main categories of adaptation: Materials, Purpose Driven and
Evolution in Materials has been happening since
the stone age. As our technology advances and
our needs as a society evolve, we create and
adopt these materials and incorporate them into
our creations, designs, and our lives. This is no
different. We live in an incredibly exciting time as
far as materials go. Nano tech, materials that
respond, move and shapeshift in response to
changes in light, temperature, water, chemical
signatures, sound and proximity are evolving
Purpose driven design is already here, but it has been more
quickly adopted by technology and nutrition industries. Purpose will become
the prevalent mindset in interior design. It is all about BRAND POSITIONING. It
is a matter of shifting the narrative about design from what it is to WHY. Aging
in place and commercial design are the early adopters in this arena. As compa-

nies pivot, they will break out of the box of the standard service provider
ness on a particular need or desire, instead of providing services based on work
needed, budget and service area.
Delivery is all about HOW we provide our products and services. This category
of adaptation has been shifting rapidly for the last decade with the growth of
online product sourcing. Now, we see that in person meetings aren’t always
necessary and the actual service side of what we do is changing. E-Design has
been addressing this over the last 5 years and will continue to grow, but there
are other constraints to break and possibilities to discover in this arena.
Memberships, wrap around services, full life cycle business models will emerge
with more prevalence in the design sector and represents huge opportunity. Look at the possibilities with fresh eyes and don’t be afraid to come up with
something new. This is the essence of innovation and I expect we’ll be seeing a
lot of it as our industry and the world evolves. I see the most opportunity for
wealth development and business strategy for companies that take the lead in
integrating wellness into everyday living. This time has indeed been challenging,
but it is also an amazing time for innovation. Let’s embrace the change and
move forward without fear as we design the new paradigm!
