NEW HUMANITY

INTERNATIONAL PRODUCT AND SERVICE DESIGN COMPETITION

INTRODUCTION

We are increasingly aware of how the models, which supported last century’s developments, are giving in to other systems and strategies that are related to a design-centred culture.
Design has been working for years at the creation of beauty, well-being and future shown in our metropolises, architectures, interiors and products.
By the side of the industry, the Design Culture has accepted its logics, its mechanisms and values, adopting problem solving strategies and playing a primary role in the systems of production, distribution and consumption; in key moments of the industrial history, this attitude opened up new ways of approaching the creation of man’s “home and things”.

PROJECT BRIEF

For this competition we ask you to “divine” the changes that the objects of our new everyday life might undergo, in consideration of the possible transformation of the contemporary society.
Think of micro projects, home tools collections (including objects that are no longer in use), capable of showing possible future scenarios based on paradigms and values that are linked to a different idea of living:

  • New ways of creating and manufacturing;
  • New ways of consuming and using;
  • New ideas of wellbeing and beauty;
  • Small projects that contain hints of a new design season for “things and homes” of a New Humanity.
