MATTER

We take an in-depth look at material and its role in design today. As we live in a world yearning for sustainability and regeneration, the way we engage with, change and use matter are of utmost importance. Our topics cover the role of designers in rematerializing the world, biomimicry, and hands-on experiences with re-engineered materials.

HUMAN

Artificial Intelligence is not making us less human, but more so. Our program today is dedicated to the delicate relationship between design and the human experience. 
We consider our interaction with machines and question the change it causes in the human species as we move towards personalized experiences, control and simplicity. 
We also discuss the empowerment of young professionals who will champion the design industries.
