Takes place during Designblok 2019

We will deeply explore the role of designers: how they should proceed in designing new objects in our today’s world glutted with things and what should be the responsible behaviour of manufacturers in their production. It is becoming increasingly clear that both designers and manufacturers will have to employ their talents and skills in a much wider way. Instead of designing new products, they will be solving problems. They will pursue the ecological aspects and the social impact of their work. In the framework of the 21st Designblok, the organizers want to ask what design can do for our better future. However, we will not only discuss design but also, more generally, how humanity and each individual can behave responsibly towards the world around us. The opinions about what the condition of the world is now and what is ahead of us are rather diverse.

Addressed speakers:

  • Paola Antonelli, Design Chief Curator, MOMA, New York, curator of the exhibition Broken Nature, Triennalle di Milano
  • Rossana Orlandi, curator, owner of the Milan gallery Spazzio Rossana Orlandi, initiator of the RO Plastic Prize
  • David Byrne, musician, founder of the platform Reasons to Be Cheerful
  • Jay Osgerby, designer, author of furniture for the future of work
  • Henrietta H. Fore, Executive Director, UNICEF
  • Nora Fehlbaum, Director, Vitra, visionary in the future of furniture
