What is the future of design?
Our world is changing. Rapidly. Technology is impacting every part of our lives, and at the same time seamlessly integrating into the spaces we inhabit, the products we use and the way we perceive the world.
DX aims to question these advances, and to uncover and present the cutting-edge, future-proofed products that respond to these changes in technology, materials and thinking.
Singapore-based designer Nathan Yong travelled to London recently to present some of his latest designs at Ligne Roset’s Soho store, where a retrospective of the designer’s work took pride of place. DX’s Ola Bednarczuk spoke to Yong about his collaboration with the French manufacturer and his design process.
The team at East London-based practice make:good recently completed a multi-sensory learning environment for Leicester’s Birkett House School, working with staff and students to turn a disused courtyard into an interactive playspace for children with complex needs.
The design world is turning its gaze east, with a strong focus in recent months on design in Central Europe. Last week, we profiled the RM58 armchair by Polish company Vzor, a mid-century design put into production for the first time last year. This week, all eyes are on Czech design as czeggs, a showcase of young Czech designers, comes to London.
