The vision of Designboost is ‘sharing design knowledge’. To make this vision come true we have created a platform of integrated formats were people can meet and interact. Now we are proudly introducing a new format to the platform which we call Boost Cast; a film format that from now on will allow us to share design knowledge online as well. During 2009 we will produce a series of Miniboosts in different cities around the world were the design community meet up for prestigious event occasions; Milan Design Week, London Design Festival and so on.
The first Miniboost for this year took place at the Stockholm Furniture Fair/Stockholm Design Week. We met up with twelve acknowledged personalities from the design industry; Alfredo Häberli, Ineke Hans, Inga Sempe, Michael Young, Monica Förster, Claesson Koivisto Rune (Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune), Michael Sodeau, Ilkka Suppanen and Apocalypse (Petra Lilja and Jenny Nordberg). We asked them the same ten questions which originate from Designboost 2008 “Long Live the City” in Malmö around the theme of sustainable cities. The questions are written by different boosters like Jennifer Leonard, Sante Poromaa and Kristina Dryza and this series of Miniboost Boost Casts can be seen as a relay race with questions as batons passed on to new boosters.
The Boost Cast from the Miniboost at Stockholm Furniture Fair/Stockholm Design Week 2009 is now online.
