Designing For The Third Age

In this episode, we're looking at design for the Third Age. The term “Third Age” was first coined by British historian, Peter Laslett, in 1987. His theory on positive ageing stated that life consists of Four Ages, with the Third Age being that period immediately after retirement,generally characterised by health, vigour, on-going personal achievement and a positive attitude to life. The truth is that we all want to remain living well and independently into our Third Age for as long as we can. How can designers approach the design of interior spaces, both public and private, that will allow people to enjoy every aspect of their lives to the full, for the longest possible time?

This episode is recorded in the Clerkenwell showroom of Hitch Mylius. ...

And others whose names become firmly associated with a particular interior style, and eventually become a brand in their own right. But does this approach make the successful delivery of projects harder or easier for interior designers and their clients? Recorded at the wonderful Andrew Martin showroom in South Kensington. ...
