Is design the answer to leaving our throwaway culture behind? This year, Design in the Age of Experience will feature a unique collaboration that highlights the power of merging Design, Science and Industry to collaboratively imagine and create new sustainable horizons.
Design in the Age of Experience unites world-leading designers, artists, architects and industry leaders to re-envision the design process for a sustainable world.
For the 2021 edition, we present AURORA, an interactive experimentation of how humanity can achieve a new, sustainable approach to life in the future. Designed by renowned architect Arthur Mamou-Mani in partnership with Dassault Systèmes Design Studio, AURORA will be unveiled at The Design Museum, London during the Waste Age exhibition in October 2021.
AURORA signals the end of the take-make-waste era and the dawn of built environments conceived for regeneration: a world in which design, science and industry converge to ensure that every “made” object – from home and lifestyle to mobility and cities – is imagined, invented and manufactured for sustainability.
“It is very important that designers start thinking beyond the timeframe of their projects. We need to start thinking of where the material came from, where it is going, how it can be reconfigured . . . the entire lifecycle needs to be taken into consideration. AURORA demonstrates that this is possible today – if only we adjust our thinking.” Arthur Mamou-Mani
