WHY DESIGN E-NNOVATION?

The world of design will undergo profound changes over the next 5/10 years. Technology is transforming the way we design objects, how we produce them, how we shop design, and how we interact with designer artifacts. DesignTech is even changing how we live. The Design E-nnovation event about more than trends: it is an exploration of our new relationship with design and a real prototype of the world of tomorrow. We look at emerging business models in the sphere, gain insight into the new possibilities that technology makes possible, and what this means both for the businesses and consumers in the sector.

LET’S CONNECT
