Milan – If you’re in the business of creating or designing objects, spaces and experiences, then everything else stops every year when Milan Design Week arrives. Our own highlights review article from this year’s recently concluded edition mentions work by almost 20 designers and brands, which is enough to get through from the comfort of one’s chair, let alone experience in person. But designers from five studios presenting innovative new work at Milan managed to find the time to speak to Frame – sharing their perspectives on how the design of tomorrow will evolve to better serve people and the planet.
Featured in this Frame Views episode are: Carlo Ratti, who emphasizes the need to address sustainability issues; Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges, who suggest longevity as a solution from the design industry; Alex Mustonen of Snarkitecture, who speaks for his own studio’s focus on encouraging social and physical interaction; Floris Schoonderbeek of Weltevree, who offers a wider sociological perspective; and Benjamin Hubert of Layer, who concludes with the power of design as a tool for change.
