Design is innovation. New technologies open up new avenues of research and experimentation, often defining new professions.

From wearable technology to the “internet of things”, design is sewn onto our bodies like a suit of clothes, giving us access to a multitude of personal services. Design thinking is the method that enables designers of objects, spaces and services to always focus on the person to whom the project is dedicated. The way we organise space and the galaxy of objects around us in the near future will play a crucial role in charting a new course for the entire human race: to ensure a fairer, more equitable, safer and more respectful environment for the planet that generously hosts us.
