DesignBoost at Arkitekturmuseet in Stockholm

January 13, 2010

The theme of this autumn’s DesignBoost in Malmö was Design for Life. Now the question is once again being posed, how to make design economical, ecological and fair when DesignBoost collaborates with Arkitekturmuseet in Stockholm.

At this DesignBoost people of worldwide reputation such as Stephen Burkes, Ineke Hans, Katrin Olina, Ilkka Suppanen, James Irvine, Richard Hutten, Bjarke Ingels, Gert Wingårdh and Thomas Sandell will participate. Additional participants will be announced.

Design for Life is about how we shall shape our way of life. How we plan, produce, deliver and consume everything from cities, transportation and infrastructure as well as food, entertainment, products and brands. Over the years design unfortunately has developed more and more into an exceedingly contributing source of pollution and over consumption. Therefore some of the biggest names in the world of design will once again meet, to show how design and architecture may be used to create better conditions for people as well as for the environment.

One of the speakers is Stephen Burks, known among other things for his border breaking collaborations with artisans in South Africa and Peru.

We need to redefine design and focus on people’s needs, rather than just surface. When design is put in a humanistic perspective one understands the tremendous ability it has to make change happen, socially as well as economically and ecologically. With knowledge of design, we can solve and improve everyday life of people both in Sweden and globally, says Peer Eriksson.

DesignBoost at Arkitekturmuseeum in Stockholm will take place on the 11-12th of February with around seventy especially invited participants. During two days BoostChats (workshops) and BoostTalks (lectures) on the theme Design for Life will be held. BoostChat on the 11th is exclusively open to those especially invited guests while the talks on the 12th will be open to the public (the entrance to the talks on February 12 is free but you have to register no later than February 8 to mija@designboost.se.

As a part of this a BoostShow (exhibition) with examples of holistic sustainable design will be open until the 9th of March.

DesignBoost invites the most pioneering thinkers. Stephen Burks is established as one of the worlds greatest designers but other brilliant talents will also attend, such as Bjarke Ingels, architect and maker of Denmark’s pavilion on the world exhibition in Shanghai later this year, David Carlson tells us. He, along with Peer Eriksson is the initiative behind DesignBoost.

WHY:
It´s time to rethink design. To create long time value instead of short time profit. To build the future on generosity instead of greed. We need optimism, new spirit and change! We need Design for Life.

Design for Life is all about how we can create better lives for the many. How we plan, produce, deliver and consume everything from cities, transportation and infrastructure to food, entertainment, products and brands. Together we have a joint responsibility. We can all make a difference

Design is always about humans – about satisfying needs, solving problems and attracting us towards new experiences. This implies that great design often is founded on a social and cultural perspective. Unfortunately design has partly turned into a major source of pollution. Just look at everything modish and the hunt for newness. I big part of the industry are focusing on more when we actually need better.

Design for Life is about care and cooperation. It´s about taking steps forward regardless of length. Doing anything is always better than nothing.

Our goal is that DesignBoost 2009 will be characterised by new insights, new thoughts, new friends and preferably laughter, or as we put it; right, ah, haha!

PARTNERS:

DesignBoost 2009 – ´Design for Life´ is a junction for curious minds, commercial and industrial life, organisations and institutions. Our BoostPartners 2009 include: Electrolux, IKEA, Audi, Iittala, Arena, Skanska, Thule, E.ON, Swedish EU presidency, City of Malmö and Region Skåne.
