Design high value-added and digitised solutions for growth markets
How to combine design with the new trends related digitisation, new value chains and business models?
When it is so hard to keep up with technological potential, it is essential to know why something should be built in the first place. Today’s challenges lie in interpreting the consumption patterns and how these are constantly shifting. To disrupt the future, design must disrupt the status-quo of production and design through digitisation & virtualization, sustainability & circularity, collaborative & sharing economy. With the advent of industry 4.0, the smart wearables’ revolution and the Internet of Things, the interest and concrete value-adding potential for such materials and products has grown tremendously. In addition to electronic or digital capabilities, engineered textiles can also smartly respond to temperature, moisture, photochromic, (bio)chemical or physical stimuli offering interesting innovation potential such as functional interiors, sports, medical solutions or clothing among others resulting in rethinking social inclusion. At the same time of FuoriSalone TV live video (12:00 PM), every day the protagonists of the projects will be available on Zoom to answer questions, curiosities and exchange experiences and visions.
