This exhibition’s name says it all. Everything we do, every day, is influenced by design: the way we dress, move, work and live is impacted by objects and the design of those objects. In the first temporary exhibition at the new Museu del Disseny, 99 real-life inventions are brought together in order to demonstrate the capacity of design to respond to the needs of society and continually improve the way we live.
Some hear the word ‘design’ and think of fancy home accessories or superfluous luxury items, but this is about product design, not designer products, and practical, rather than aesthetic, considerations. From fire-extinguishing drones to pills containing endoscopic cameras, the exhibition focuses on innovations that are expressly aimed at improving the lives of users across a range of disciplines (communication, education, health, sustainability and safety), the environment in which they operate and the society to which they belong.
Opening: February 18th, 7.30pm
