DESIGN TALKS: PROTOTYPING IDEAS – UTOPIA
Design is much more than shape. Design is above all a good idea
The first of four design talks promoted by Domus Academy: Utopia on September 4th, Trans-Local on October 30th, Nurture on January 15th 2018, and Waste on March 12th, 2018.
Utopia as a means to understand what are the roles and functions of Design in the 21st century. Every utopia seems to generate dystopias as by default. So how can we change the world without creating even more problems than we solve? Design is intimately related to the theme of Utopia.
During the event, Alice Rawsthorn (award-winning design critic and the author of several books on design) will intervene as moderator and along with Alexander Groves (Artist and Co-founder of Studio Swine), Peter Lang (Expert in Italian Radical Design and Architecture ) and Bruce Sterling (Futurist, Science fiction writer) will share ideas and solutions with the public, who will be able to witness the talks about the future of Design.
During the evening, it will appear globally recognized designers like: Matteo Cibic — Matteo Cibic Studio; Licia Florio and Francio Ferrari — L’F Shoes; Francesco Franchi — Designer and Journalist of la Repubblica; Francesca Lanzavecchia — Lanzavecchia + Wai; Daniele Bortotto — Zanellato/Bortotto. #PrototypingIdeas
