Since he created Alchimia, the movement that in the 70s created the counter-design breaking all the rules, has experienced the many facets of the designer’s profession, he wrote, taught, invented, built, designed, helped, entered the museums of half the world and dedicated himself to many initiatives in order to help with art-therapy the weakest, the marginalized, the invisible. In everything he is guided by a strong focus on social. We asked him:
- After this pandemic, what will happen to design?
For a long time many people asked me almost daily what would be the future of design, art, architecture, aesthetics, ethics... To reply I had equipped myself with a glass sphere in front, bought at Ikea, and I must say that since then I was much more believed.
So I said, for example, that we would go from paranoia to schizophrenia, from production to reproduction, from meta-theory to linguistic games, from utopia to heterotopy, from hierarchy to anarchy, from alienation to decentralization, from design to chance, from metropolis to counter-urbanization, from authority to eclecticism, from synthesis to antithesis, from price to no cost.
