Three days of lectures and experimental workshops organised by La Casa Encendida in partnership with IKEA during the Madrid Design Festival.
Design has changed radically in recent years, and the industry is increasingly located outside Europe. There is also an alarming lack of traceability of the materials we use to create our objects, and the human conditions in which they are manufactured are even harder to understand and negotiate. In addition, radical new technologies are changing the way we perceive, process and interact with the spaces around us. What does it mean to design in negotiation with these realities? What commitments must we make to ensure that the final balance is not negative for our planet and its societies?
Answering these questions, posing others and reflecting on the future of the design industry is the aim of Indirect Object.
This cycle will be held in the space created by the design studio Sociedad 0 (Ignacio and Juan Ezcurra) with the winning project of “The Revolution of Spaces”, a competition launched by IKEA and La Casa Encendida to support the most innovative emerging design.
