WHERE IS DESIGN GOING? LET’S HEAR OUR PROTAGONISTS
One more little preview of the latest book by Gisella Borioli to capture design experiences and vision passed through Superstudio Più venues from 2000 to 2020 during the increasingly vibrant Design Weeks. “DESIGN SUPER SHOW - evolution and mise-en-scène of design at Superstudio in Milan” can be ordered through firstname.lastname@example.org and soon also on Amazon. All sales are for charity purposes.
“Aesthetics, ethics, economics, technology, philosophy, science, consciousness, contamination, digitization, sustainability, have redefined the global design view and highlighted its complexity” This is what DESIGN SUPER SHOW, the book on the last 20 years of design seen at Superstudio in Milan, announced from the first page, where in a certain sense the transformation of the physical object into a cultural/emotional project took place, capable of awakening feelings in order to open future’s horizons. A completely different approach from the “technical” books in the category. Rather, along with the present, signs of future. And how the dematerialization of object’s representation will lead us, as Philippe Starck says to “Design as we know it today will disappear within twenty years... Artificial intelligence will be everywhere”. Together with him other design world protagonists who were guests at Superstudio with their evocative installations created for important international companies, are wondering about the future.
