Main topic – Hybrid Innovation

Hybridization is a dynamic process that enables growth and innovation, from a status of given categories into a new status based on a fluid vision of transformation: a future of blurred borders and endless possibilities. The value of hybridization lies in the crossing of borders and in the creation of new categories, already destined to be overcome by the next hybrid. In order to produce innovation through the use of creativity, designers and artists hybridize disciplines, concepts, materials and shapes, as well as products, styles and epochs: the effect is something that derives from a known set, but was never seen before.As an example the category of Trap music is the hybridization of Rap music and Pop music and is already being contaminated by other categories and transforming into something new.

The great Masters of Design are men and women who – often through the process of hybridization – have left their mark in their reference disciplines, they are visionaries who have looked at reality with different eyes – they are transgressors of the past who continue to inspire generations of creatives and paved the way for a fluid present – where given categories are unstable – and a future where transdisciplinarity is the keyword.
