Design Talks NYC




Internationally-acclaimed designer and philanthropist Clodagh passionately believes that good design supports wellbeing and that it can transform people’s lives.  She feels that clutter can undermine serenity, but minimalism should not be self denying.  The experience of entering a Clodagh-designed space is one of blissful harmony.  She is noted for her “Life-Enhancing Minimalism™.”


One of the world’s leading innovative multi-discipline design practices, Clodagh Design’s award-winning portfolio spans over 30 countries and a wide range of eco-conscious projects and products that include million-square-foot hotels, residential buildings, international spas, private residences, restaurants, retail stores and showrooms, offices, women’s apparel, cosmetic packaging, branding, furniture, home furnishings, healthcare and even private jets and luxury yachts.


Clodagh’s groundbreaking work has captured a steady stream of accolades and awards from international media and her peers. Clodagh was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame and Hospitality Design Platinum Circle; Architectural Digest has named her among the Top 100 Designers in the World; The Robb Report put her in their Top 10 Interior Designers in the World, and Traditional Home magazine calls her one of the Top Twenty Design Icons.  Fashion Group International made her 2010 Star of the Year, and Contract Magazine selected her W Hotel Fort Lauderdale as 2010 Hotel of the Year.


A globally in-demand speaker, Clodagh’s third book Life-Enhancing Design will be available March 2018. Her second book, Your Home Your Sanctuary, was released by Rizzoli in October 2008; Total Design, her first book printed in 2001, is now in its third printing.
