I just stumbled upon the speaker list for the Tasmeem Doha, design conference to be held February 20 – 23, 2006 in Doha, Qatar. I immediatly recognized two names: Bruce Mau and Stefan Sagmeister (the latter I’ve seen speak at the TYPO in Berlin, where I also gave presentations in 1999 and 2001).
I am impressed. Bruce Mau is one of my favourite designers. I am now considering to go. I’ve never been to Qatar so maybe this could be a chance to check it out.
Here is the list of speakers as it appeared on the (rather cumbursome to use) site:
Bruce Mau, Communication Design, Architecture, Interior Design
Stefan Sagmeister, Communication Design
