I went with knowledge company Designboost to Milan and made a MiniBoost to explore the personal viewpoint on what Design for life is for some of the worlds most acknowledged designers. The MiniBoost resulted in ten unique interviews with personalities like; Tokujin Yoshioka, Marcel Wanders, Hella Jongerius, Maarten Baas, Christophe Pillet, Nika Zupanc, Edward Barber, Jay Osgerby, Stephen Burks, Jean-Marie Massaud and Arihiro Miyake. All interviews are available at the MiniBoost section of the Designboost web.
The questions asked looked what Design for Life is all about and how we can create better lives for the many. How we plan, produce, deliver and consume everything from cities, transportation and infrastructure to food, entertainment, products and brands. And that we together have a joint responsibility. And that we all can make a difference.
The questions are written by different Boosters at the DesignBoost 2009 key event “Design for life” in Malmö, Sweden.
