Design Talks

Design beyond matter

April 18 2021
Personalized technology improves the quality of life, spaces and relations in connected communities. An essential, pure approach to design underscores the stylistic codes of public spaces in the post-Covid era. The search for a perfect form to give to innovative technology permits us to design increasingly linear, contemporary spaces. The process whose matrix is the architectural design of the 20th century finds its maximum expression in today’s design. This means that every single object takes on a symbolic value as well as a formal function, and that the quality of the artifact, the creative act of its making and its heritage represent important values to communicate, beyond simple functional use.
