TALK: DESIGN FOR THE BETTER

-

 

What does it take to make a difference through design? Urgent matters such as climate change and overconsumption make us overthink the nature and culture of the products we buy. Distributed design guides creatives and designers in their aim to create locally produced products by working on demand and with an open source approach. This evening, international creative gamechangers and INDEX Award nominees share how they move data, instead of product.

A couple of special nominees of the INDEX Awards and local talents will present their ideas on the future of design. They aim to change the world of fabrication by focussing on the movement of data, using local material supply chains and digital fabrication. How can this become the new standard for production?
