Democratic Design Day 2019
In its fourth edition, Democratic Design Day takes up the theme "Design for Purpose". While awareness of global challenges such as the climate crisis is growing, designers are also putting themselves at the service of the most important questions of our time and presenting their solutions.
The UN's Sustainable Development Goals offer a clear approach to the most pressing challenges facing the global community. We ask ourselves where the SDG is already entering the design and what needs to happen beyond, and we present designers who are pioneering in their field. Welcome to Democratic Design Day 2019 in Basel, Switzerland.
The Democratic Design Day has attracted a number of visionary speakers over the last years such as philosopher Alain de Botton, former frog design CEO Patricia Roller, eight times Golden Compass Award winner and architect Mario Bellini, designer Matali Crasset, designer and founder of industrial design Kim Colin, professor Simonetta Carbonaro, architect and designer Antonio Scarponi and head of design at IKEA, Marcus Engman.
