DESIGN FOR NEXT / EAD12 @Sapienza University – Roma (IT)

Contemporary shifts in society, technology, production are reframing design processes, approaches and tools. While professionals, educators and researchers are questioning the next stage of innovation, design is evolving as a wide open field with many applications and meanings. More than ever it is important to investigate through design research and practice in order to tackle the societal, technological and industrial shifts of the future.

The 12th EAD Conference is hosted by Sapienza University of Rome (IT) and it will foster discussion among designers, academics and experts about the articulated scenario of contemporary design and
its perspectives, with intent to nurture diversity and interdisciplinarity.

On April 13th, Maurizio Montalti, founder of Officina Corpuscoli, will be contributing to the conference by offering a keynote presentation revolving around his design-research practice, its scopes and developments and the related implications, at the intersection between design, biology,
farming and industry.

When:     April 12-14, 2017
