We see design as a tool for social transformation to be used for meeting the needs of contemporary life. When we design spaces and furniture, we do not have pre- packaged answers, instead asking ourselves how design can improve life in the space at hand. This is why we decided to participate in the exhibition by setting up a kitchen in collaboration with Impact Hub, an innovative laboratory and incubator for co-working projects. The kitchen is a room designed for creating connections, exchanging experiences and sharing life: a symbol of home that brings people together and facilitates coming up with new ideas.
Where Ideas Have Sex, the space we furnished at the Milan Triennale, is open to visitors every day and will host, between 12 January and 2 April, professionals from various fields who have been invited to share and talk about their ideas about life in domestic space. Among the guests, Daniele Lago will be giving a talk on 25 January aimed to generate dialogue about new ways of living in spaces through design. The invited participants also include Luisa Collina, a professor in the Design Department of the Politecnico di Milano and vice president of Cumulus, an international association of design schools, and some leading members of the LAGO DESIGN NETWORK.
Can design improve life in the spaces we live in? This is the question that Daniele Lago, LAGO CEO and Head of Design, will be exploring on Thursday 25 January from 6.30 to 8.00 PM.
