A two-day design lab held by IDRV during the MAK exhibition “MADE 4 YOU. Design for Change“.
For change to come about, a design revolution is necessary after which designers attend to further defining or redefining what exists, that is, radically improving it, rather than designing a steady stream of new variations of products. The design revolution will also topple the current technologically shaped concept of innovation. We hereby begin to disconnect from traditional ideas of products and design; to rely on experiment, on solidarity rather than competition. The social relevance of design shifts to the forefront. Social innovation, being well informed rather than naïve, exchange and networking, openly passing on knowledge resources, and lateral thinking that’s a good basic position for the start.
