THE POWER OF DESIGN
Yesterday, 27 April, on the occasion of International Design Day, driven by the International Council of Design (Ico-D), students of the Istituto Europeo di Design’s three campuses joined the cause ‘Design for Each and All’, through a range of simultaneous actions transmitting a single message: “All people deserve to live in a well-designed world”.
How ‘each and all’ humans encounter the designed world depends on varying degrees of equitable access to certain material realities, spaces, and experiences. All good design can bring joy, disseminate information, promote education, ensure access to healthcare and provide knowledge and well-being. For this reason, the role of the Designer is indispensable within our society.
IED champions the work of the Designer as a key element in understanding the interplay of social, economic, environmental, technological and geographic factors to develop solutions that improve people’s lives.
“All people deserve to live in a well-designed world”. Living well and flourishing, supported by objects, places and systems designed to this end. Design for Each and All is about noticing all the parts present, giving care and attention to a broad range of human variation, relations and environments.
Now, more than ever, it’s time to transmit and disseminate the power of design.
