Sustainable collaboration between Italy and Korea.

Seoul, 29 November - 1 December, 2022

Italian design: not only iconic products

Italian design: not only iconic products

In Seoul, Italian design is a bridge for diversities that learn to get to know each other and collaborate.
Not only iconic products, but technological skills, innovation of materials and processes for interior design, construction, packaging.

"In Italy, continous innovation, design and tradition integrate to create high quality products.  
Complex problems can only be tackled in a trans/disciplinary way, cross-cutting, integrating different people and knowledge. We need places and moments of interaction, open operating ecosystems to take care of collective intelligence by connecting experiences.

We have entered the fourth era of innovation that revolves around the creation of spaces-platforms-communities of practice and research entrusted with the mission of extracting the enormous innovative potential that remains unexpressed in organizations".

This is an extract from the speech by Giorgio di Tullio, philosopher and designer, moderator of the event.
