The theme for the first Designboost key event, DesignBoost 2007, was “sustainable design”. Year two, DesignBoost 2008, focused on sustainable cities with the theme “Long live the city”. This year Designboost will go deeper and look into sustainable life with a theme called “Design for Life”.
October 14-16 Designboost presents DesignBoost 2009 “Design for Life” in Malmö through a variety of integrated BoostChat (workshops), BoostTalk (lectures) and a BoostShow (exhibition). Designboost will invite Boosters from all over the world which represent the true frontline within design in its broadest context. All are authorities in their field of expertise and the selection reflects the principle that design is multidisciplinary reaching way beyond the obvious. The selected Boosters will interact over three days with companies, organisations and institutions. BoostTalks and BoostShow is open for public as well.
When it comes to sustainable life there are probably many things that needs to be questioned, left could very well be right. The objective of DesignBoost 2009 is to make everybody question, reach awareness and think in new paths when it comes to creating better lives for lots of people. This is after all the ultimate goal for all design.
